The turn of the half -century at T.C.S. has seen some of 
the greatest achievements in the history of the School. Last 
year we closed the first half of the twentieth century by 
opening our new indoor rink, a memorial to Peter Campbell, 
one of the greatest athletes and sportsmen ever to attend 
the School, and also by v/inning three Little Big Four 
Championships. This year we are opening the door to the 
next fifty years by dedicating our new chapel to the memory 
of the boys of the School who gave their lives for us in 
three wars, and as a Thankoffering for the safe return of 
so many others. 

The opening of this chapel is the realization of the 
dream of the men who built our present School after the 
fire of 1928, that some day the boys could attend services 


in their own chapel, instead of the temporary one we have 
occupied for twenty-one years. On Sunday, Oct. 21, we were 
all very privileged participants in perhaps the most impor- 
tant ceremony ever to take place at the School, that of con- 
secrating the new Memorial Chapel. It was a beautiful 
service from the first notes of the organ until the last person 
had filed out of the building, and we could all see the heart- 
felt thanks in the eyes of the mothers, fathers and relatives 
of the deceased Old Boys for the fitting and lasting tribute 
that was being paid to them 

* * * * m 

During the service we are sure many of the boys of the 
present School must have been asking themselves the ques- 
tion whether some day another service will take place, a 
service in memory of those that died in a war that is yet 
to come. We pray that there will never be a service of this 
kind, but we have noticed that there is a feeling prevalent 
among the boys of the School, that they will be powerless 
to prevent the outbreak of another war. There is little basis 
for such despair, however, when we stop to analyse the 
ways in which we will later be able to help our country 
achieve a real peace. Trinity has in the past produced boys 
who later became statesmen, highly renowned scientists, 
and leaders of the country; and there is no doubt that she 
will continue to do so; but that is all in the future, and we 
often ask what we can learn and do now that will help us 
in later life. Aside from the basic knowledge that permits 
us to pass our Senior Matriculation, we are able at the 
School to obtain extra valuable knowledge from the lectures 
and material that are available to us on World Affairs, 
Political Science or Economics. However, while learning 
all we can, we must also be aware of the type of world we 
are going out to face. 

Everyone must learn that it is a world of conflicting 
ideals; a world where large sections are so different from 
us that certain nations will persecute anyone who declares 
his belief in God; a world where no two people can be 


treated or dealt with in the same fashion because of their 
different ideas of justice, peace, and the rights of a hunmn 
being; and, above all, it is a world that badly needs to be 
straightened out and set on the path to peace once more. 
Before we begin our careers we must have a perfect knowl- 
edge of all we believe to be right, but we must never make 
the mistake of ignoring the other person's views of what he 
considers to be right and true. 

If we can build our knowledge around these principles, 
we will have taken an important step in the direction of 
making ourselves better citizens of our country. By so 
doing, we shall, in some measure, have fulfilled our obli- 
gation to those for whom our Chapel has been dedicated and 
whose lives were sacrificed in the hope that we might live in 
freedom. And we shall also have done our part in prevent- 
ing a Third World War. 

Owing to difficulties in printing, it has been impos- 
sible for "The Record" to produce two numbers this term. 
It is hoped that the issue of December will appear early in 



Using as his theme the School motto, "Blessed are the 
Pure in Heart", the Headmaster on September 23 preached 
to the boys in the Chapel. He said that forty-five years 
ago cholera, a painful disease, used to break out frequently. 
The disease was finally stopped when chemicals were in- 
troduced to kill impurities in water. "Our motto. Blessed are 
the pure in heart", said the Headmaster, "means pure from 
all contagion, disease, and evil. A true Christian's pure 
heart is full of love, at its highest point sublime and unique." 
To illustrate this, Mr. Ketchum used a quotation from St. 
Paul, "If I have not love, I am nothing". The Headmaster 
continued, saying that "Pure in Heart" means singleness 
of purpose ,a positive objective, which is to lead a good life. 
"One may ask," he said, "what is the good life? Reading 
the New Testament in our services helps to point the way 
to a good life." Then the Headmaster mentioned that the 
study of religion to understand Christ's teachings is a 
privilege which is denied to many. It lays a sure foundation 


for our lives which will not collapse. In this troubled world 
people are drifting and afraid; there is a definite relation- 
ship between the decline in the study of Christianity and 
the lack of purpose in life. Christianity does not now always 
occupy the first place in our lives. In closing, the Head- 
master said that we must learn the good life and God's 
way, and lead more abundant, better lives. 

Mr. Ketchum's closing words were from the Bible. "Love 
the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, 
and with all your mind." Do this and you shall be truly 
"Pure in Heart." 


The offering of thanks to God for His goodness and 
graciousness was the theme of the Harvest Thanksgiving 
sermon on September 30 by the Reverend Canon Lawrence. 

To illustrate this theme, an experience which the Canon 
encountered during the first World War was given. The 
hospital at Etampes, France, held three thousand wounded 
from the battle of Vimy Ridge, which had been fought 
a short time before. It was Padre Lawrence's job to assist 
in the censoring of mail, and while carrying out that duty, 
he came across a letter with a five pound note enclosed. It 
was addressed to a London hospital for the blind, and car- 
ried the message: 

"... from a Tommy who is thankful that he is alive." 

Commenting on the incident, Canon Lawrence said that 
it was an instance when a soldier, after experiencing a 
narrow escape from death, had come out wounded but 

"Too often," he continued, "we fail to show gratitude 
simply because we take gifts or our heritage for granted. 
The realization that countless lives have been lost making 
the world a better place for us to live does not come 

The fact that ingratitude is difficult to bear was brought 
out in the sermon. Using a quotation from Shakespeare, 


Canon Lawrence showed that even the elements are not as 
cruel as an ungrateful person. 

Another illustration used was the well-known story 
of Christ and the ten lepers. Often, the Canon pointed out, 
it is better to be a member of a minority, a minority which 
pauses like the one grateful leper, to give thanks. 

In conclusion, our chaplain urged us to try and express 
our recognition and thanks to God, even though we may 
never fully understand it. By using the old and beautiful 
Gloria in Excelsis we may make every day a "Thanks- 
giving" day. 


The Reverend C. J. Frank, M.A., preached in the old 
chapel on Sunday, October 14. Our last visiting preacher 
in the old chapel, he remarked on the speed with which the 
new chapel had been built and how proud we must be to 
have such a fine new chapel. "The school would lose a 
great deal if it had no chapel services," he said. In the 1895 
chapel, Mr. Frank was impressed by the air of mystery. 

He said that this chapel brought to mind the old stone 
churches of England in Kent. Simply decorated, and 
strongly constructed, the church walls seemed permanent 
and solid. The speaker said that the walls reminded him of 
the people, strong in character, who remained firm during 
the bombing of the war days. 

He was reminded, he said, of a very beautiful clock 
which had lain in the warehouse a long time. After the 
war it was taken out and he would often go to watch the 
craftsmen fix the intricate mechanism. And then he said 
he felt sorry when he thought of the workmanship of today 
as compared with the clever designing and careful, patient 
construction of that clock and the church walls. Everyone 
today is trying to do things too fast and trying to find too 
many "shortcuts". He said that that is not God's way of 
doing things and that God does not use any "shortcuts". 



On Sunday, October 7, the Chaplain spoke to the School 
using as his text, the Parable of the Talents. He pointed 
out that it is of great value to us as it is an important 
Christian belief. 

In the parable we see that the master did not give to 
each servant an equal number of talents, but as he saw fit. 
Then one day the master called for an account of what had 
been done with the money and each servant was rewarded 
in proportion to his due. 

In life at first there is an unequal distribution of what 
we consider valuable. But at the end we are called upon to 
give an account of our stewardship of the Lord's gifts. 

In closing, the Canon said that we will be rewarded by 
God in relation to the use we have made of God's gifts 
to us. 


The past year has been a most gratifying one for the 
choir; on all occasions that the choristers were called upon 
to supply special music, the boys excelled themselves — first 
of all at the laying of the corner stone of the nev/ chapel 
and then at the Carol Service. The latter program was 
interesting and varied and quite outstanding was the treble 
solo by Orval Reis. Adamson and Osier as assisting soloists 
were most pleasing. 

In due course followed the Confirmation Service at 
which the choir sang the "Veni Creator" and Elgar's 
Anthem, "Jesu Meek and Lowly", with Reis singing the 
solo very beautifully. 

The Memorial Service on Trinity Sunday was a great 
success and attended by a large congregation of visitors. 

The choir sang Elvey's memorial Anthem, "The Souls 
of the Righteous Are in the Hand of God", and after the 
service in the chapel proceeded to the Cross for the most 
impressive part of the Service. 


The music on Speech Day is of course the climax of a 
year of hard work and the boys quite excelled themselves 
in Stanford's setting of the 150th Psalm and Walford- 
Davies' setting of Psalm 23. 

The anthem chosen was "O Brother Man" by Shaw. 

A new hymn was used for the first time at this service, 
particularly appropriate for the boys who were leaving, 
"Go Forth with God". The service closed with the very 
moving School Leaving Hymn, "And Now With Thanks- 

Prior to the end of term concert at which the School 
songs were sung with great gusto, pins were presented to 
all the choir boys as a gift from Mr. Britton Osier whose 
generosity and kindly thought is much appreciated. 

The choir lost many of the faithful in June, among 
whom were Mitchell (the head Choir Boy), Slater, Parfitt, 
Bruce, Emery, Smith, Cooper i, Cooper ii, Adamson i, 
Humphreys, Meredith, and Rutley. 

Several others have retired for vocal adjustments: 
Stevens-Guille, Osier, Ketchum, Merry, Clarke (J. S.). 

All these boys and those who are still members of the 
choir, the writer would thank most gratefully for their 
co-operation, enthusiasm and willing help which enabled 
this hard-working organization to maintain the high stand- 
ard of recent years, and so greatly assist in the life of the

Sunday, October 21, 1951, Trafalgar Day, will live long 
in the memories of many T.C.S. people for on that day our 
new Memorial Chapel was consecrated and the first services 
were held in it. 

At eight o'clock the new Chapel bell rang for the first 
time and a service of Holy Communion was celebrated by 
the Right Rev. L. W. B. Broughall ('88-'94) assisted by the 
Right Rev. R. J. Renison ('89-'92) and the Chaplain. 

The day's formal proceedings began at 10.15 a.m. when 
His Excellency, the Governor General and Lady Alexander, 
accompanied by an aide and a lady-in-waiting, arrived at 
the saluting base, south of the Junior School. The Head- 
master greeted them and introduced them to some of the 
senior members of the Governing Body. Master Timmy 
Tottenham then presented a corsage to Lady Alexander. 
The Corps then gave the royal salute and His Excellency 
inspected the ranks. Wings were given to Spencer and 
Dolph and after the march past, the Governor General ex- 
pressed himself as being much impressed with the steadi- 
ness and efficiency of the boys on parade. 

The Vice-Regal party then walked across the fields to 
the Memorial Cross and on to the Lodge; the boys did a 
quick change into their blue suits. 

At ten minutes to eleven, the procession was formed 
in the old Chapel; it was led by Norman Seagram, the 
Crucifer, followed by the 60 members of the choir in their 
blue cassocks and surplices. Then came ten members of 
the clergy, followed by Bishop Renison, Bishop Broughall, 
the Bishop of Toronto's Chaplain, the Rev. Terence Crosth- 
wait and Bishop Beverley. Behind this procession came 
the Governors and other distinguished people including the 
Vice Regal party. There were, altogether, some 120 people 
in the procession. During the ringing of the Chapel bell 
it wound its way from the old Chapel doors, along the road- 
way to the new Memorial Chapel; when the choir reached 


the doors of the Memorial Chapel, the processional hymn, 
"Praise To The Lord, The Almighty, The King of Crea- 
tion" began. 

Their Excellencies, Lord and Lady Alexander, were met 
at the door of the Chapel by the Lord Bishop of Toronto, 
the official visitor of the School, and by the Chaplain of 
the School, Canon C. G. Lawrence. When Lady Alexander 
had been shown to her place, Viscount Alexander, accom- 
panied by the Bishops, Col. J. W. Langmuir, Chairman of 
the Governing Body, Provost Seeley, Dr. Cosgrave, Canon 
Stuart, the Chaplain and the Headmaster moved to the 
altar steps, the Headmaster carrying the Book of Remem- 
brance. From the steps the Governor General read the 
Page of Dedication from the Book of Remembrance. When 
he had finished he handed the Book to Canon Stuart who 
then placed it on the altar. While all were facing the altar 
the choir sang the invocation: "Father, in thy gracious 
keeping, leave we now Thy servants sleeping." 

When His Excellency had been shown to his place next 
to Lady Alexander, immediately to the right of the entrance 
doors, the Service of Consecration began in the Narthex 
of the Chapel. There, the Bishop of Toronto was received 
by the Chairman of the Governing Body and the Head- 
master, and Colonel Langmuir read a petition requesting 
the Bishop to consecrate the Chapel. The Bishop accepted 
the petition and during the singing of a psalm, he and the 
clergy, preceded by the Headmaster and the Chairman of 
the Governing Body, moved up the long aisle to the Sanc- 
tuary. There, the Bishop conducted the Service of Con- 
secration, praying that all the forms of service used in the 
Chapel would be acceptable in God's sight; he then asked 
the Rev. F. H. Cosgrave to read publicly the Sentence of 

After the Chaplain, Chairman of the Governing Body 
and the Headmaster had returned to their places, a shor- 
tened form of Matins began with the singing of part of the 
Benedicite, followed by the First Lesson, the 55th Chapter 


of Isaiah, read by the Headmaster, Psalm No. 84, the 
Second Lesson, the 21st Chapter of the Book of Revelations, 
read by the Provost of Trinity College, the Jubilate, the 
Creed, Responses and Collects, read by the Chaplain. The 
prayers for the King's Majesty, the Royal Family, the 
Governor-General and Parliament were read by Bishop 
Broughall. Then came the School hymn and the Sermon 
delivered by the Right Rev. R. J. Renison. The full text 
of the Sermon is printed elsewhere. The hymn after the 
Sermpn was the special dedication hymn, No. 346. 

Bishop Renison then read the prayers for those who 
laid down their lives, for our Founder and Benefactors and 
for the School and the choir sang a very impressive introit 
while all were kneeling. The Blessing was then given by the 
Bishop of Toronto, one verse of the National Anthem was 
sung and then came the Recessional Hymn, No. 305, "Now 
thank we all our God," and the service was over. 

The Vice-Regal party, accompanied by the Chairman 
of the Governing Body and the Headmaster and Chaplain, 
then inspected the Chapel in detail and later returned to 
the Lodge where many people were presented to Lord and 
Lady Alexander. Luncheon followed at 1 p.m. in the Gym. 
and Hall and at 2 p.m. the Tower bell rang to summon the 
600 people from the Gym. into the Hall for the Governor- 
General's address. Viscount Alexander was introduced 
by Colonel Langmuir in a very happy speech during which 
he quoted from Mr. Winston Churchill who spoke of our 
present Governor General as being the most trustworthy 
friend and General in every way during the dark days of 
1940-41. His Excellency then gave a short but memorable 
address to the boys which was greeted with unsurpassed 
enthusiasm. Watts called for three cheers for His Excel- 
lency and Lady Alexander and the roof beams trembled 
at the volume of the boys' voices. The formal proceed- 
ings came to an end with further introductions at the 

The Mayor and Council of Port Hope then took the 
Vice-Regal party for a tour of the town and one of the 


most unforgettable days in the history of the School came 
to an end. 


The Rt. Rev. R. J. Renison, M.A., D.D., Lord Bishop 
of Moosonee, delivered the sermon during the Service of 
Consecration of the Memorial Chapel on October 21. Choos- 
ing as his text, John 1:26 "There standeth among you, 
one whom ye know not", he spoke as follows: 

It is too early to ask which is destined to become the 
greatest city of Canada. It may be that, when the awaken- 
ed Orient comes into its own, the Pacific Coast mtay become 
the centre of population. But in the realm of our mind, 
we have no doubt as to which is our greatest city. 

It is an invisible city. It is not found in Canada. It 
has no name, but its spires can be seen more clearly than 
the Belfry of Mens or Mount Ortona. The silent streets 
are scattered all over France and Belgium, with newer 
suburbs all the way from the Sicilian Straits through the 
heart of Italy to the gateway of the Alps. There are ham- 
lets in the land of the Zuider Zee and countless lonely 
habitations from Berlin to Ceylon and Burma. But to the 
mother heart of Canada it becomes a unit, and when once 
seen is never forgotten. Its river is the ocean, where many 
sleep till the sea gives up its dead. It is approached by the 
hard road of duty, which divides it from north to south, 
while the way of sacrifice runs east and west. In the 
centre stands the temple of Immortality, where restful 
shade trees grow. 

It is a Canadian city. It is on another continent but 
neither time nor space can ever alter its character. In all, 
they number 100,000. More than half the number have 
been waiting since 1918. Who shall say that the spirits 
of St. Julien have not met their sons and comrades at 
Dieppe? At Vimy, rising on an acre of Adriatic marble 
from the crown of the ridge, towers the greatest monu- 


ment on the Western front. It is probable that other ma- 
terial memorials will be erected to keep the name of 
Canada in the hearts of a new generation. There will be 
many new hallowed spots in fields that will be forever 
Canada. These men have done more for Canada as a 
nation than any other city since we were a people. They 
are ours. 

It is a City of Youth, We may grow old but they are 
forever young. The average age of the soldier is 25. Some- 
times we ask ourselves whether a life may not be complete 
when its great work is done. Jesus died v/hen he was little 
older than the average soldier. It may well be that those 
of us who have to carry on through years of disillusion- 
ment have not a harder fate than the men who died in the 
moment of victory. In the last thirty years, our concep- 
tion of the other world has changed. Our memories are 
peopled by a multitude of heroes struck down in the flower 
of their youth — very different from the pale and languid 
cohorts of the past, composed of the sick and the aged. 

It is a City of Hope and Faith. In Bunyan's immortal 
allegory, when the Pilgrims came to the land of Beulah 
they could see across the valley to the celestial city, the end 
of their journey. We have come down from the mountain 
peaks of sacrifice and idealism, and we are now near the 
dark valley of doubt and disenchantment. Thomas Hardy's 
terrific drama of the Napoleonic wars takes the view that 
there is no progress and no meaning in human life, but an 
endless cycle of folly and woe. Let us not forget here 
that those who gave their lives for Canada and the freedom 
of the world gave all they had, and gave it freely. They 
had faith — and shall not we? 

The Colours of the City are Scarlet and Gold. The 
fall of the year suggests solemn and reflective memorial. 
Our Canadian autumn is unique. The coming of nature's 
annual death is glorified by the scarlet and gold of falling 
leaves. It is a happy coincidence that the old Armistice 
Day this year begins its new life as a general Memorial 
E^y on Sunday. At last all the heroes of this young coun- 


try who have died for her in every war are gathered to- 
gether in the arms of a nation's love. It may come to pass 
tha+ November 11 will become the All Saints' Day of Can- 

Man is the only created being who lives in the past, 
present and future. He is not a beast of the field who wails 
the loss of his progeny from vague sense of primordial pain. 
Even before Christ he believed he was not made to die. 

So, we kindle our lamp of remembrance not only for 
this our own shrine. It is joined with the lights of other 
nations in the bright cluster of the faith in the spirit of 

Then there is the mystery of the Unknown Warrior. It 
is the mystery of who he may be that fascinates the mind. 
Your neighour or mine, Canadian, Australian, Scotsman or 
Londoner? He may be any one. 

Taken from a grave which had a name or from a name- 
less resting place in No MJan's Land. It is this that holds 
us wondering. But really we would rather not know. A 
name would bind him to a few. Nameless, he belongs to 
us all. Identified, he would have one mother. Now he is 
every mother's son. 

Without ribbons or honours he has all honours. With- 
out title or rank he ranks above royalty. Without the 
prejudice of a name he assumes the style of every man. He 
is the flesh of our flesh and the kinsman to us all. 

He is the own brother to every honest nobody in the 
English-speaking world, and his honour is the Crown re- 
served for those who are faithful unto death. 

It is the significance of the unique ceremony that holds 
us by a spell. The unknown warrior is a type of many 
men and a symbol of many things. 

He gathers to himself all the memories of the unre- 
turning brave. He receives all the victories brought at so 
great a cost. He relieves the grief of countless mourners. 
He is a symbol for this and succeeding generations of 
youths' generous offering and the ruthless sacrifice of war. 


He has not been laid to rest in St. Paul's where Wel- 
lington and Nelson were buried, but in Westminster, the 
nobler resting place, where kings and poets and states- 
men sleep. The King himself was Chief Mourner as the 
servant of the nation. He is the apotheosis of the ordinary 

Two thousand years ago there was another who chose 
to be without a name. When Christ came to our Battle of 
Life, He turned from His high estate and stepped down to 
the common level. 

He wore the regulation uniform of our common 
humanity and bore no sign to distinguish him from other 

He was a child of the poor, when his parents were on 
tramp. He was a day labourer, earning His bread by the 
sweat of His brow. He was the elder son who loved His 
mpther and in the hour of death her name was on His lips. 
He went unrecognized and . . . unrevealed . . . save for an 
indefinable impression. 

He came to the house of sorrow as a friend. The 
darkness fled and He passed on. If He had any favourite 
it was the outcast and unarmed. The sinners loved the 
stranger and hated themselves because they loved Him. 
He claimed no title save Son of Man. 

His disciples were not sure who He was as they won- 
dered whether under that dear familiar frame was one of 
the prophets or some other. 

It is the Son of Man who brings the Warrior home. 

I must link the Nameless One with the Unknown 
Soldier. It is this Son of Man who brings the Warrior home. 
He too was buried in a strange grave. But He was not to 
remain there. The Father wakened Him from His sleep 
and called Him home. As the Apostle wrote, "because He 
took upon Himself the form of a man and became a servant 
and made Himself of no reputation, and became obedient 
unto death, even the death of the Cross. Wherefore God 
has most highly exalted Him and given Him a name which 


is above every name." And so He became the Lord of Life 
and Death, and it is when His trunipet sounds Reveille 
among the silent valleys that men wake and hsten and rise 
up and turn homeward for who is so dull as not to see 
that this home-bringing of a nameless man is also a sym- 

Christ is the same in the life of today, a strange 
presence that flits across our life. Our dead may have 
said : 

The Old Chapel 
We had forgotten you, or very nearly, 
You did not seem to touch us very nearly; 
Of course we though about you now and then 
Especially in any time of trouble. 
We know that You were good in times of trouble 
But we were very ordinary men. 
And all the while in street or lane or byway, 
In country lane or city street or highway. 
You walked among us and we did not see. 

We think about you kneeling in the garden, 
Ah God! The agony of that dread garden, 
We know you prayed for us upon the Cross. 
If anything could make us glad to bear it, 
'Twould be to know that you could also bear it, — 
Pain, death, the uttermost of human loss. 
Though we forgot you, you will not forget us 
We feel so sure You will not forget us. 
But stay with us until this drean; is past. 
And so we ask for courage, strength and pardon 
And you'll stand beside us to the last. Amen. 



The Headmaster gave the first regular address in the 
Memorial Chapel on October 28 and spoke as follows: 

There have been many memorable days in the story 
of this School, for we have had, as a School, a more colour- 
ful and unique history in our comparatively short span of 
eighty-six years than any other similar foundation of which 
I have heard. 

In its way, yesterday was memorable with its closely 
contested and well-played games, the maroons vs. the blues, 
and all mixed up with the green grass; in the background 
those lovely rolling hills folding into the horizon and at the 
south the wonderful view over the ever-changing lake. 
Those impressions many of us will remember. 

The destruction of the School by fire in February, 1895, 
and again on that Saturday afternoon in March, 1928, were 
occasions which will always live in the memories of those 
who witnessed these events. 

The opening of the first Chapel built for the School, on 
Palm Sunday, 1874, was a milestone in the life of the young 
School; Dr. Bethune simply says "this event was a great 
joy to us all." 

Then the re-opening of the Chapel after the fire of 
1895, rebuilt and redecorated, must have been an even 
deeper joy to all. 

The opening of the new School, so well constructed, in 
April, 1930, was another red-letter day. The first visit of a 
Governor-General to T.C.S., that of Earl Grey in November, 
1907, is well described in "The Record". He and those with 
him attended chapel and sat in the stalls immediately to the 
right of the entrance doors, with the Bishops and some of 
the Clergy in the stalls to the left. The Service, I am sure, 
lasted two hours. 

His Excellency had been received by the Cadet Corps 
and the boys wore their uniforms in chapel, the old-fash- 
ioned army type. Dean DuMoulin, an Old Boy, afterwards 
Coadjutor Bishop of Ohio, preached. Provost Mlacklem, of 


Trinity, and the Rev. J. Scott Howard, were am^ng the 
visiting clergy. All the speakers at the Prize-giving after 
lunch spoke of the occasion as being the most memorable in 
the history of the School. 

Some of our more recent Speech Days, the visits of the 
Princess Alice and the Earl of Athlone, some Inspection 
Days, the opening of our new artificial ice rink, so 
generously given, and the opening of the New Tuck, were 
times we shall remember. But the events of last Sunday 
were to me the most memorable of all the occasions I have 
known at T.C.S. and the most precious. 

In the presence of a world-famous man, His Excellency 
the Governor-General, accompanied by his gracious consort. 
Lady Alexander, we took part in a Service most of us had 
never before known, the service of consecration of a house 
or building; the Bishop "set it apart forever from all pro- 
fane and common uses" for the worship of God. And the 
building was this beautiful Chapel, given to us by over 
eight hundred T.C.S. people in memory of our gallant Old 
Boys, those lads who did so much to save us from evil and 
mischief, from the crafts and assaults of the devil in the 
form of worldly dictator's. 

In essence, those Old Boys, and many others like them, 
counted not their lives dear unto themselves but risked all, 
and many gave all, for one all-important purpose, and that 
was to preserve the dignity of human life, the abiding and 
incomparable worth of the soul of mian. They fought and 
died in far lands to give us another chance to learn the 
unparalleled value of the Christian life, that jewel of great 
price, and as a world family another opportunity to live 
together in unity. 

"He nothing common did or mean 
Upon that memorable scene." 

says Andrew Marvell about King Charles the First when 
he was about to be executed. 

There was nothing common or mean about the sacrifice 
of one hundred and eighty-five splendid T.C.S. boys for our 


protection, nor was there anything common or mean about 
the raising of this lovely memorial. 

There must never be anything common or mean or 
ignoble in our worship in this place. 

When we are here we can feel so much more clearly 
and intimately the presence of the Eternal Spirit, the power 
Which so truly opens to us a new hfe, unutterable in the 
depth of its joy and comfort. 

After that great gathering on Sunday, I came here 
alone early last Monday morning, before the School was 
astir, trying to give thanks for all the great benefits we 
have received as a School, and I knew then that this was 
indeed a holy place. Many of you, I am sure, had the same 
feeling at that first Ser\ace last Sunday, the Holy Com- 
munion, so beautifully celebrated by our Old Boy Bishops, 
Saints of God in their service here on earth. And I know 
others had the experience this morning and many more 
will have the same feeling on other Sundays. 

This is your Chapel; use it when you will, and always 
know it is the House of God. 

Much thought was given to its planning. At one time 
it was to be placed between the Senior and Junior Schools 
and to be designed as a country church. Then it was thought 
best to put it to the west of the Memorial Cross, running 
north and south. But most of us feel now that we made a 
good decision to have it here. We wished it to be easily 
accessible and we wanted it to be, as nearly as possible, on 
the ground level so that boys could walk right into it without 
going up many steps. We wanted the whole School to be 
treated as a Choir, the Sanctuary to be broad and the floor 
not too high, and we did not want a white-robed Choir to 
be between the School and the Sanctuary. In that way we 
felt our attention would be more drawn to the central place 
in the Chapel, the Holy Table or Altar with its Cross of 
love, of sacrifice, and its promise of life beyond the grave. 
We wished the physical conditions of the Chapel to be as 
nearly perfect as possible, for we knew how sensitive a 
school could be to uncomfortable temperature or poor venti- 


lation. The heating is under the floor and controlled by 
thermostats, the high roof gives plenty of air, the lighting 
is good and the occasional sun glare will be reduced very 
soon when the windows are partially stained. From the 
beginning, we wanted colour and the classical beauty of 
simplicity. The colour scheme will be further developed 
and the simple, fine lines of the Chapel have been much 
admired. The Communion rail is not being used because we 
do not wish to put any barrier between the altar and the 
School, and also because the transverse lines do not har- 
monize with the predominant lines of the building. 

Many of the distinguished people who were here last 
Sunday have written to say how impressive the Service was 
and what a beautiful Chapel we have. Why, I sometimes 
wonder, do we naturally prefer the beautiful to the ugly 
things of life? Surely it is because we have been made in 
the likeness of God. It is natural then that we should wish 
to show Him that we treasure such beauty and that we 
consider it a rare privilege to be able to create something 
lovely to His Glory and for His Worship. 

The mother of four Old Boys who has known this 
School for some fifty years wrote and said, "No words can 
express the beauty of that Service. It took me back to the 
days in the 1895 Chapel, and it seemed as if the whole 
atmosphere and spirit of that dear old place had lain dor- 
mant since it was burned down, and now had come to life 
again in this beautiful new Chapel." 

We have been given this precious place to use regu- 
larly while we are at school, a few short years only, however 
long they may seem to you. We are, therefore, the trustees 
of those who have built it for us and we shall earnestly 
endeavour to be conscientious and reUable trustees. But 
more important than that, we are trustees of those Old 
Boys in whose memory it has been given, and especially of 
those one hundred and eighty-five who laid down their lives. 
I knew well most of those T.C.S. boys; they were lads Hke 
you. with your likes and dislikes, sometimes complaining 


of the number of Chapel Services or the length of the ser- 
mon, but I am quite sure each one of them feels now that 
no more worthy memorial could have been imagined or one 
which would be a more lasting help in leading generations 
of T.C.S. boys to find the way, the truth, and the life. 

But we are also trustees of our hard-won and treasured 
Christian inheritance, the life and the faith revealed to us 
by Jesus and kept inviolate and perfect by all the Saints 
whose memory we venerate next Thursday. That is indeed 
a trust and a deep responsibility. 

It is my fervent hope that many boys who have wor- 
shipped in this Chapel will some day be revered as Saints 
by all who knew them. 

When Jesus was but twelve years of age, not even a 
'teen ager', his parents took him to Jerusalem to worship 
in the temple. On their way home, the day after they had 
left Jerusalem, there was no sign of the boy; they thought 
he had been with others in their company, but he was not 

You can imagine how worried Mary and Joseph must 
have been, for Jerusalem was a big city in those days, the 
countryside was largely wild, and there were no R.C.M.P.! 
They looked everjrwhere, asking all their relations and 
friends if they had seen him, but there was no trace of him. 

For three whole days they looked and they rnust have 
become distracted. And then they found him, sitting in the 
Temple, talking to the learned men about God, quietly 
hearing them and asking them questions. His mother was 
amazed, and running up to him she asked him why he had 
not stayed with them. They had been terribly worried and 
troubled about him. 

Do you remember Jesus' reply, at twelve years of age? 
"Why did you bother to look for me? Don't you know 
that I must be about my Father's business?" 

There is no more burning need to-day than that many 
of you should quickly be about your Heavenly Father's 


Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth wherti 
moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break 
through and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in 
heaven, where neither moth nor rust do corrupt, and where 
thieves do not break through and steal. 

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be 


After the fire of 1928, it was planned to build a new 
Chapel but the depression made the undertaking impos- 
sible. The old dining hall has been used as a Chapel since 

During the Second World War, when 850 Old Boys en- 
hsted voluntarily, and sixty laid down their lives, it was 
generally agreed that a new Chapel should be built as soon 
as possible, as a memorial to those who did not return, and 
as a thankoffering for the safe return of many others, in 
three wars. Over fourteen hundred Old Boys have seen 
military service, as volunteers, in the South African War, 
and the two World Wars; one hundred and eighty-five gave 
their lives. 

The appeal for funds was made in January 1947, by 
a Committee under the Chairmanship of C. F. W. Burns 
('21-'25), of Toronto. Bishop Renison, himself a T.C.S. 
Old Boy, said that "The Memorial Chapel will be for all 
those who love their old School, a shrine of remembrance 
and a Westminster Abbey of their own." 

Very soon, over a hundred thousand dollars was con- 
tributed, and within a few years the amount totalled more 
than a quarter of a million dollars, given by over eight 
hundred subscribers. 

In the spring of 1950 the plans, prepared by A. S. 
Mathers, R.C.A., F.R.A.I.C, of the firm of Mathers and 
Haldenby, Toronto, were approved by the Governing Body 
and the contract was awarded to Joseph Pigott & Sons. 


Construction began immediately. The Comer-Stone was 
laid by G. B. Strathy, K.C., on October 22nd, 1950. 

The Chapel is Modern Gothic in style. Three hundred 
boys and Masters can be comfortably accommodated in 
pews arranged antiphonally. There is a balcony for fifty 
visitors, and a Narthex where others may be seated, if 

The tall lancet windows in the Sanctuary will be of 
fully stained glass and they will form the Memorial Win- 
dow. It will be a gift from one who has been a very generous 
Old Boy. The side windows will be partially stained only; 
two have already been given. 

The Altar Cross and Candlesticks, given as a memorial, 
were designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and executed in 
London by Watts and Co. The dossal curtain and the 
frontals were made by the same firm. They have been 
given by the Ladies' Guild. 

The Riddel Posts, surmounted by carved angels, are 
also gifts to the Chapel. 

It is planned eventually to decorate the ceiling and the 
walls of the Sanctuary with suitable designs. 

The Panelling and Pews, with furnishings in the Sanc- 
tuary, have been given by a very generous T.C.S. family. 
They are a memorial. 

The Lectern has not yet been completed; it and the 
Bible are gifts from the mother of three Old Boys. 

The carving over the entrance doors represents the 
Bishop's mitre and dove of peace with angels, on the right, 
and on the left the builders of the Chapel, the Architect, 
the Contractor, a workman. 

The Font is being carved in England of purbeck marble. 
It also is a gift. 

The Book of Remembrance and The Book of Donors 
have been lettered, illuminated, and bound by Elizabeth 
Greenhill and her associates of London, England. They will 
find a permanent place in the Chapel and Narthex; at pre- 
sent they may be seen in the Guild Room. 


The Bell was cast in England by Hears and Stainbank, 
founded 1570, the firm which made "Big Ben" and the peal 
in Westminster Abbey. It is given as a Memorial. 

The outdoor pulpit is rather unique; it is expected that 
some Services may be held outside in wann weather. 

When it is possible to obtain a suitable pipe organ, the 
pipes will be placed in the loft behind the gallery. 

The Choir v/ill always sit in the block of seats around 
the organ and immediately opposite to it. The Junior 
School will take the blocks near the Sanctuary. The 
younger Senior School boys will sit in the front rows of 
the other blocks, older boys in the middle rows, and the 
Sixth Form in the pews at the back. Masters will sit to 
right and left of the entrance doors and in the canopied 

There is a full basement, which it is planned to use as 
an assembly hall, and there are wash-rooms and a choir 
vestment room. 

This is the third Chapel to be built for T.C.S. boys in 
Port Hope, and the seventh building used by the School as 
a Chapel, since the School was founded in 1865. 

The School will ever be grateful to the over eight 
hundred subscribers who have made this beautiful mem- 
orial possible. 






Mrs. Luther Holton has sent five large prints of groups 
of Royalty and distinguished figures of the Victorian age. 
There are keys to all the people pictured. These are very 
fine historical prints, beautifully framed. 

Mr. R. P. Jellett ('92-'97) has given the School two 
valuable paintings. The first, a very large one, is entitled 
"The Search for Sir John Franklin", painted by J. W. Car- 
michael, 1850, a well-known English artist in his day who 
was influenced by Turner, This fine canvas was given to 
Mr. Jellett by R. B. Dunwoody, C.B.E., of Tadworth, Surrey, 
and he, in turn, is passing it on to T.C.S., from Mr. Dun- 
woody, in memory of his visits to Canada. 

The smaller picture is a painting of Moraine Lake, in 
the Rockies, with the Cathedral Mountains behind; it was 
executed by Robert Gissing of Alberta, and is a little gem. 

Mr. Jellett added a third sketch by Arthur Lismer, 
which also is full of interest. 

The School is indeed glad to have these paintings and 
soon we should have sufficient wall space to hang them to 

Mr. Norman Seagram ('90-'93) has given the School 
the cricket bat used by Mr. Dyce Saunders during many of 
his famous innings in international and other matches. Mr. 


Dyce Saunders was for many years the Secretary of the 
Governing Body, and in that capacity made invaluable con- 
tributions to the School. He has been widely called one of 
Canada's most distinguished sons; his portrait hangs in 
Trinity House, 


Very soon we hope to re-model the old Chapel for use 
as a reading room and library. Leather-covered comfort- 
able chairs and chesterfields will be needed for the reading 
room in some numbers; if any parents or Old Boys have 
such furniture which they could spare to the School, it 
would be a wonderful help. Perhaps someone would know 
where good used furniture of that nature could be pur- 


The School sincerely congratulates C. P. R. L. Slater on 
winning the Sir Edward Beatty Scholarship in Classics at 
McGill University. This is the highest award in Classics 
open to matriculation candidates and it is the first time 
a T.C.S. boy has won it in more than twenty years. 

Slater also was awarded two scholarships by Trinity 
College, Toronto, the Bishop Strachan in Greek, Latin, 
English, and French, and the Professor William Jones, but 
he could not take them up. 

Jim MacGregor won a Dominion Scholarship from Nova 
Scotia for admission to one of the Services Colleges. This 
Scholarship is of the value of $500.00.

This is not the first time that I have visited your 
famous School, because I was here in May, 1947, for a 
brief visit, but it is the first occasion I have been present 
for a ceremony of such importance as we have attended 
to-day. And I am grateful for the opportunity you have 
given me to pay my tribute to those whom we have just 
honoured in the Memorial Chapel, many of whom served 
under my command in the recent World War, 

When we think of those gallant lads who volunteered 
to leave the security of their homes and cross the Atlantic 
to fight on foreign fields for King and Country and for 
their ideals, our thoughts must surely turn to courage. 

There is a line in Sir Walter Scott's "Lady of the 
Lake" which every boy should hang in his room. It reads: — 

"The will to do, the soul to dare". 
But remember this — if you have the courage to begin, you 
need energy to follow through. And don't forget this — 
Canada would not be the happy, free and prosperous 
country she is today, if your ancestors, the early pioneers, 
had not had the courage to begin and the courage to follow 
it through. Thanks to those fine men of courage and energy, 
you have been left the priceless legacy of a rich and re- 
spected country. Canada stands very high in the regard 
of the world today. 

So much for the past and present, but What of the 
future ? 

The future will depend on you young people who will 
soon reach manhood and on whose shoulders Canada's 
future will rest. 

You are fortunate in your generation because you 
have the finest of schools and Universities to train and fit 
you for the great work which lies ahead. And there is so 
much yet to be done, not only in opportunities for your own 


personal advancement, but for the welfare of Canada and 
the world. This is the great challenge which will face you, 
the great adventure in which Courage and Energy will be 
the key to success. 

For inspiration we cannot do better than take as ex- 
ample the record of those gallant young men from this 
School whose memories and deeds we have honoured to- 

I have every confidence that you will prove worthy of 
the trust which has been placed in your hands. 

Good luck and best wishes to Trinity College School 
and to you all. 

Now I am going to ask your Headmaster if you may 
have a holiday in recognition of this memorable day and 
the fine way you have conducted yourselves. 


The School was honoured by the visit of Sir Donald 
Baillie on October 14. A graduate in Engineering from the 
University of Sheffield, Sir Donald did bridge designing 
with the L.M.S., then designed military bridges with the 
War Office. During the war the many thousands of Bailie 
bridges used by the allied forces were, as Lord Mont- 
gomery said, the most valuable single invention in the 
winning of the offensive. He is now superintendent of 
Bridging with the Military Experimental Establishments. 
He was knighted by His Majesty and awarded the O.B.E. 
Sir Donald was introduced by the Headmaster and brought 
to the School by Mr. E. P. Muntz. 

Sir Donald spoke briefly to the boys in the hall, de- 
scribing the differences and similarities between the English 
"Public" schools and private schools in Canada. At the 
Headmaster's request, he then described the bridge which 
is named after him, the Baillie bridge, a type of prefabri- 
cated bridge built in the U.S. and England to carry the 
heavy tanks across rivers and ravines. It is now being 
widely used in civil engineering projects. 



A frank, clear description of the Japanese Peace Treaty 
and a discussion of its implications was presented to the 
School by Mrs. J. F. Davidson on October 18. Speaking in 
the hall, Mrs. Davidson described the treaty as revolu- 
tionary, the first treaty of conciliation, designed to build 
a friend and ally of Japan, rather than flattening her 
economy with harsh reparations. "Already," she said, "the 
U.S. has spent three billion dollars in Japan. The members 
invited to San Francisco were told to "come, don't yap, 
sign." "The nature of the treaty makes it impossible to 
alter its substance," she said, "yet China, India, and Burma, 
the largest areas of Asia, were not there to sign." Mrs. 
Davidson said that the Treaty was one of peace, to get the 
Japanese into the U.N. set-up, as a solid front against a 
possible powerful combination of Russia and China, a com- 
bination of almost two continents. Mrs. Davidson closed by 
telling the boys to watch events in the Far East, and see 
how the treaty is ratified in Canada. 

An excellent and expressive speaker, Mrs. Davidson 
then further discussed International Affairs with a large 
number of interested boys for almost an hour. 

The School thanks Mrs. Davidson for so clearly pre- 
senting a complex subject, and discussing the treaty with 
the boys. 


As part of the welcome to Princess Elizabeth and 
Prince Philip, the School cadet corps went to Trenton on 
Friday, Oct. 12. A special train took the boys from Port 
Hope to the Air Force siding. Owing to the thoughtfulness 
of the A.O.I.C., we were given an excellent position outside 
the Memorial Gates. At this point we were able to get a 
short but clear view of Princess Elizabeth and the Duke 
of Edinburgh. We were very pleased to hear that the Royal 
Couple took special notice of us and inquired about us. 


The Trenton Guard of Honour gave a perfect display 
of parade drill, and deserve much praise for the precision 
they achieved. The School itself marched very well at all 
times, and were comphmented on their fine showing by Air 
Vice-Marshal Slemon and others. The salute given by a 
squadron of Mustangs with a Lancaster bomber in the 
middle, followed by the Prince of Wales' Feathers by a flight 
of jet planes, was something we shall never forget. 

Following a tea in the Officers' Mess, the Princess and 
the Duke took off from the Trenton air-base to continue 
their tour in Toronto. It was certainly a very worth-while 
visit, and one that will be long remembered by the boys of 
the School, 


On or about December 10th, the School will have a 
supply of Christmas Cards available for Old Boys, They 
will have a photograph of the interior of the Memorial 
Chapel in four colours and should be exceptionally attrac- 
tive; the whole School and Choir are in the picture. The 
cards are being made by Rous and Mann in Toronto, 

The cost of the cards will be three dollars a dozen, plus 
twenty-five cents for exchange and mailing. Orders to the 
O.B.A. office at the School will be filled without delay. 


The School is very grateful to the many people who 
wrote letters of appreciation after the Memorial Chapel was 
formally opened on October 21st. Some spoke of the beauty 
of the building and the lovely surroundings; others men- 
tioned the singing of the boys and the arrangement of the 
service; still others referred to the organization, the Guard 
of Honour and the luncheon. One very distinguished Cana- 
dian said he had never been "to a more impressive service, 
a lovelier setting, or to a Vice-Regal gathering so well 


arranged where there was such a warmth of friendship and 

All these letters, some fifty of them, brought much 
satisfaction to our hearts and made us realise anew that 
our lot is indeed cast in a pleasant place. We are much in- 
debted to the writers .

The first meeting for the School year 1951-52 was held 

in the Guild Room on Wednesday, October 31st, at 6.30 p.m. 


Once again an Art Club has been organized by Mr. Key. 
Wevill was elected club president, and Roe, Phippen and 
Spencer custodians. The club holds informal meetings every 
Wednesday afternoon. There are some twenty members 
already, and anyone else wishing to join is welcome. 


The results of these examinations were, in most ways, 
the best we have ever had. Counting our quahfied VI form 
candidates only, and not the few boys who were trying some 
papers for the experience, 97% of all papers attempted were 


passed, and just 65^r were honour papers, 51% being j&rst 

and second class honours. 

This is the highest percentage of Upper School honours 

and papers passed of which we have any record, and the 

VI Form of 1950-1951 deserves the highest praise, not to 

mention the Masters who taught them.

Mr. Archbold was born on Vancouver Island and 
attended school there until 1932, when he entered T.C.S. 
He not only did well in his scholastic work, but he also 
found time to play on the championship football team in 
1934, captain the basketball team, and play with the first 
eleven in cricket. From T.C.S. he went to the University of 
British Columbia where he took up honour classics and 
graduated with honours, winning a scholarship every year 
while at university. During the war he served in the Royal 
Canadian Navy. After receiving his discharge he enrolled 
at the University of Toronto to study for his M.A. He is 
now teaching English and Latin. His interests include ten- 
nis, badminton, and golf, and he is now helping to coach 
Middleside football. He is well liked and we hope he will 
stay with us for many years to come. 


Mr. Tony Prower is another T.C.S. Old Boy to return 
to be a member of the School staff. He attended T.C.S. from 
1943-1946, during which time he was a member of the choir 
and showed considerable musical talent. From T.C.S. he 
went to the McGill University Conservatory of Music and 
at the end of four years he achieved his Associate of Music 
based on the piano. He studied the organ as a second sub- 


ject. After leaving McGill he went to the University of 
Toronto to continue his study of the organ and to add the 
oboe to the instrunnents which he mastered. He hopes 
eventually to make his career on the oboe. 

Mr. Prower will be at T.C.S. four days in the week — 
from Wednesday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. During 
the other three days he will study in Toronto. Among the 
duties which he fulfils are teaching the piano, and taking 
Musical Appreciation classes; he plans to arrange a Gilbert 
and Sullivan operetta some timie this year, and hopes to start 
an orchestra. In short, he is promoting all kinds of music 
at T.C.S. and will probably give an occasional recital for us. 
Already we have had some excellent sing-songs. We hope 
that he will have a pleasant stay here and we feel sure that 
music at T.C.S. will benefit from his presence. 


Each year, the Air Cadet League of Canada grants to 
Canadian Air Cadet Squadrons, 225 free flying training 
scholarships. These amount to 17 hours of flying experi- 
ence and 60 hours of ground school. Most boys at T.C.S. 
in the sixth or fifth forms are eligible for these scholarships. 
The scholarship examination is written some time in May 
as a rule. It deals with Meteorology, Navigation, and Air- 
manship, all of which are included in the Air Cadet courses 
taken at T.C.S. The 225 cadets in Canada receiving the 
highest marks in these exams are granted the scholarships. 

Those who write the exams must be over 16 years of 
age and must pass the qualifying medical test. To pass this 
test, good eyesight is very important. Those granted the 
scholarships arrive at the flying club to which they have 
been assigned at the beginning of July and the course con- 
tinues until the beginning of August. The planes usually 
flown are Aeroncas or Cessnas; that is, light planes of less 
than 100 horse-power. Those on the course may sleep at 
the club or not and may have to wear uniforms. This de- 


pends on the club. Usually each cadet does up to an hour's 
flying in the morning and is instructed in ground school in 
the afternoons. It is possible to have a job and take the 
course at the same time. 

The ground school consists of Navigation, Meteorology, 
Airmanship, Theory of Flight, and Air Regulations. Also 
there are thirty hours of practical maintenance experience 
on engines and airframes. At the end of seventeen hours, 
all cadets take a flight test v/ith an instructor in which they 
are marked on take-offs, landings, turns, stalls, spins, and 
forced landings among other things. Those who pass this 
test and the written examinations are eligible for their 
Air Cadet Wings. The written examinations are the same 
as those for a Private Pilot's Licence and consist of three 
papers concerning the subjects taken in ground school. 

The only further requirements for a Private Pilot's 
Licence are thirteen more hours flying experience and since, 
by this time, most flying is solo, and therefore cheaper, and 
since the government gives a grant of $100 to those who 
get this licence, many Air Cadets finish out their thirty 
hours. Furthermore, this licence grants an automatic five- 
year commission in the R.C.A.F. if the owner joins that 
service. In this way, for about $35, Air Cadets are taught 
how to fly and earn their Private Pilot's Licence. This is 
not a chance to be missed and there are very few such 
excellent opportunities to achieve so much for so little. 



We see that SWINGY is back from his convalescence? 
in Montreal . . Did anyone see the TRINITY SPEEDWAY 
in the Bethune House basement? . . . JOHN LONG boosted 
himself to a record of THIRTY-THREE seconds, and then 
bribed MR. G.T. to close down the track. Everyone had a 
wonderful time except PETE S.-GUILE, who had a small 
complaint that his bike was never meant to be a racer, and 
is now a wreck! But the complaint was overruled, because 
all the racers were in the hospital recuperating. We're 
expecting "ACE" CHRISTIE out of said infirmary any 
month now ... he was seriously injured trying to scale the 
mantel over the fireplace on his bike . . . thought he could 
get more speed on the downhill run. 

As per usual, the big sweat this month is football . . . 
we have heard rumours that BOOBLES CHRISTIE was 
thinking of throwing away his camera to aid Bigside with 
his running blocks ... or can he only do them on the way 
to breakfast? Now that the newspaper truck has refused 
to bring up any more chickens, JOHN LONG, BEN DOVER, 
had to go hungry on Sunday evenings. 

The BIG COMPLAINT this issue is again over the 
opposite sex . . . Bethune's OWN LOVER BOY is perplexed 
as to what to do about a certain lady friend at B.S.S., who 
apparently won't leave him alone . . . any advice, chaps? 
. . . perhaps we've only heard one version of the story. In 
Bethune, the NEW BOYS are planning to revolt. It seems

Bruce, I. B. ('45-'51). In the fall of 1945, a small, towheaded boy 
found himself transplanted from the tropical climate of the Bahamas 
to the more frigid zone of Port Hope. During his years in the Junior 
School he discovered the virtues of snow and developed techniques to 
keep his ankles from wandering all over while learning to skate. In 
his first two years in the Senior School Ian became the best rifle-shot 
of the School, and played on two Bigside cricket teams. Through 
those winters he learned more and more about hockey, and the fol- 
lowing year he made the first hockey team. By doing this he had 
accomplished a very rare feat. It had taken him but four years from 
the time he first saw a sheet of ice to make the Bigside hockey team. 
Also in his third year he was on the Little Big Four Championship 
squash team. Ian was the type of boy that never let any misfortune 
ruffle his good-natured temperament, and this characteristic and the 
fact that he was a natural leader in all phases of School life, were 
two of the major factors in lan's appointment as Head Prefect in the 
fall of 1950. Also in the fall of 1950, Ian donned football pads for 
the first time in two years, and made the starting lineup of the Little 
Big Four Championship Rugby team. That winter he captained a 
very successful hockey team, and for his excellent playing he was 
awarded a Distinction Cap. He again became the School's best rifle- 
shot and he played on a near championship squash team. In the spring 
he captained the cricket team, which became Little Big Four Cham- 
pions, and was awarded his second Distinction Cap. When not taking 
part in choir practices or acting as President of the Debating Society, 
Ian could often be found chatting about the wonderful spear-fishing 
and water-skiing to be had in Nassau, and there were few in the 
School who had never seen the picture of his midget motor car of 
which he was so proud. Our heartfelt thanks go to Ian at McGill for 
leading the School to one of the best all-rovmd years in its history, 
and we hope that the Bronze Medalist of 1951 will revisit the School 
very often. 

Newcomb, E. B. ('48-'5l). Nogie came to T.C.S. from Montreal 
in the autumn of '48 and immediately began to take a lead in every 
phase of School life. He joined the Dramatic Society and in his final 
year, he won the Butterfield Trophy for acting. He was also to be 
found every Sunday evening attending meetings of the Political Science 
Club, in the capacity of treasurer. Although he did not neglect his 
academic work, Nogie also entered actively into sports, winning his 
First Team colours in Soccer and his Extra Fii'st Team colours in 
Hockey. One of Nogie's greatest contributions to School life was his 
invaluable work on the Record staff and he was most justly given 
an award for Exceptional Merit as Editor-in-Chief of the Record. He 
also won the prize for the best poetry contribution to this magazine. 
In his final year, Nogie was a Prefect, Head of Bethvme House, a mem- 
ber of the School Council and the Debating Society, and also Head 
Sacristan. On Speech Day he was awarded the Jim McMullen Trophy 
given to the boy whose character most resembles that of Jim McMullen, 
one of the finest boys in the School's history. Nogie has entered second 
year McGill, and we know that he will have the same success there as 
he has had here. 

Cooper, R. T. ('46-51). Reid travelled up north to Trinity carry- 
ing a somewhat battered guitar in one hand and a pair of combination 
soccer and cricket boots ( if such are in existence ) in the other. Reid 
soon proved himself very adept at making the best possible use of 
these implements, which he had already tested at home in Ber- 
muda. He played on the soccer team for three years winning his 
colours in all these years and captaining the team in his last year. 
He also played on the first cricket team for thi-ee years and was vice- 
captain in his second to last season. In his last season, he did not 
turn out for the team because of his studies, but finally was persuaded 
to play in the Little Big Four games and was a great help in winning 
the Championship. In the winter of 1950 Reid was elected captain 
of the swimming team, and very successfully led it to its first Little 
Big Four Championship. The stiains of his guitar often floated 
peacefully over Bethune House in accompaniment to his tenor voice, 
and he became known as an excellent and willing instructor in the 
various South American dance steps, including the rhumba, tango, 
samba and mambo; for two years he was also a member of the Choir. 
Reid was made a Prefect in his final year, and this was a just reward 
for all he had contributed to the School. We hope that he will often 
come and visit us, never forgetting, of course, his guitar. 

Smith, D. A. V. ('47-'50). It was in 1947 that Smitty, with banjo 
under arm, strummed his way into the halls of Brent House. Before 
he had left, Dave had entertained many hundreds with his nimble 
playing of that instrument. Smitty, a rabid football enthusiast, played 
on the First Team during his last two years. He was elected co- 
captain of the team in his final year and with his brilliant blocking 


and tackling, he led the team to its first Little Big Four Champion- 
ship in sixteen seasons. It was thus he was awarded a well-deserved 
Distinction Cap. Dave also earned his Middleside hockey and cricket 
colours, and in the fall of 1950 he was appointed a School Prefect. 
Smitty, with his friendly disposition and continuous good humour, 
would never shirk any difficult task handed to him and he could be 
counted on to give his utmost at all times. A natural leader, Dave 
directed Brent House to a victory in the House Drill Competition on 
Inspection Day. A valuable member of the Choir, Smitty was also a 
very efficient crucifer. He will always be remembered as one who 
would lend a helping hand at all times and he was respected by every- 
one. Smitty has embarked upon a military career at Royal Roads 
and we all wish him the best of success in his studies there. 

Ketchum, P. G. C. ('47-'51). After a long, almost record-break- 
ing, seven years in the Junior School, Crik jumped from the J.S. head- 
boy to a Senior School new-boy in 1947. In his first year he was 
vice-captain of Littleside football and played on the first cricket team. 
The following year he captained both Littleside football and hockey 
teams. In 1950 he was on the Championship squash team and again 
a member of Bigside cricket. In his last year he devoted his time 
in the fall to studying, but still managed to find time to coach a 
Littleside football squad. He played on the first hockey team and 
was vice-captain of the 1951 cricket team, champions of the Little 
Big Four. For his good play and hard work through four consecu- 
tive years, he was awarded a Distinction Cap in cricket. He again 
starred on the squash team, and was a co-captain of the team. In 
the summer term he won the School tennis tournament. Crik was 
not only a leader in sports, but also in many phases of School life. 
He was a crucifer in his last year, and was elected to the School Coun- 
cil. A member of the Dramatic Society, he took the lead in the 
Christmas entertainment. He also joined the Political Science Club 
and the Record staff. Admired and respected by all, Crik was made 
a Prefect in his final year, where his leadership and ability were clearly 
revealed. He is now at Trinity College, where we expect and know 
he will do well. 

Wright, K. H. ('47-'51)» Fixjan the time he entered the Junior 
School in 1947 until he left the School last year, "Curly" maintained 
an enviable record as an athelete and a leader. His outstanding sport 
was football in which he showed exceptional ability. In his final year 
he was elected Co-Captain of the First Team and helped lead T.C.S. 
to the championship of the Little Big Four. His able quarterbacking 
contributed a great deal to the team's victories. For his excellent 
playing he won a Distinction Cap and the Kicking, Catching, and 
Passing Cup. In the same term Curly ran very well in the Oxford 
Cup race, gaining a half First Team Colour. In the following term 
Curly took a major part in winter sports also. He played extremely 


well on the First Hockey Team and won a Distinction Cap in this 
sport too. During the summer term Curly played an important role 
in cricket being on the First Cricket Team and winning his Bigside 
Colours while studying for his Upper School exams. For his ability 
and leadership Curly was made a Prefect in his final year. On Speech 
Day he was awarded the Jack Maynard Trophy for leadership, in 
recognition of his outstanding contribution to Bigside Football. Curly 
was a fine sportsman and well liked by those who knew him. He is 
now going to McGill and apparently is already making his presence 
known on the football field. The School wishes him good luck and 
an equally good record in the future. 


Slater, C. P. R. L. ('48-'51). When Peter arrived at T.C.S. from 
Australia via Montreal, it seemed to have already been ingrained in 
his mind that he was to carry off nearly all the academic prizes the 
School could offer, and win a good many of the athletic awards. In 
his fifth form year he won the General Proficiency prize, all but a 
few of the individual subject prizes, and was awarded the scholarship 
into the Sixth Form. His last year in the School was a series of 
triumphs, culminating in his becoming a Prefect, and Head Boy and 
Chancellor's Prize Man. During his final year, Slats turned out for 
soccer, was a staunch full -back on the First Team and was awarded 
his colours. TTie winter term found him occupied in his favorite 
sport, squash. He was co-captain of the First Team and in succes- 
sive years won the Junior tournament and his half first team colours. 
In the spring he managed to find time from his studies to win his first 
team colours on the Championship Cricket Team. Peter was the Fea- 
tures Editor of "The Record", the secretary of the Dramatic Society, a 
member of the Choir, the Political Science Club, the Debating Society, 
and also a crucifer. Incredible as it may seem, he found time amid 
all these activities to study enough to earn for himself eight first 
class honours in his Senior Matriculation examinations. On Speech 
Day, Peter was awarded, in addition to the pi'eviously mentioned 
prizes, the Governor's Silver Medal for English, the Rigby History 
prize, and the Sixth Form prizes in R.K., English. Latin, Greek and 
French. He is now studying Arts at McGill where he won the Sir Ed- 
ward Beatty Scholarship in Classics, and we have no doubt that he will 
have as much success at university as he has had here. 

:Marsh:iil, R. ii. (•48-'51). Ken, who was probably better known 
as "Moff ", came to the Senior School from the J.S. in the fall of 1948. 
He had made quite a name for himself in the J.S. by performing 
daring acrobatic stunts on the bathroom fixtures. In his first year 
in the Senior School he continued his gym. work and earned his First 
Team colours; also, he was a member of the Junior Ontario Cham- 
pionship Gym. squad. "Moff" was, in addition, a stalwart member 
on the Littleside Rugby team of that year. He decided, however, to 
spend most of his time studying in his second year and as a result 


he obtained excellent marks in his Middle School examinations. His 
main athletic activity of that year was gym. work and climbing the 
sharply inclined Brent House roof. In his third and final year, 
after much persuasion, Ken tried out for the Bigside Rugby Team. 
Althought the lightest and smallest man on the team, he was an 
exceptional blocker and tackier. Being a member of the Little Big 
Four championship team, he was awarded his First Team Colours. 
He also captained the Gym. Team in this year, making a name for 
himself in provincial competitions. For his efforts and first class 
work. Ken was made a House Prefect. To complete a very success- 
ful year, "Moff" wrote a good set of Matriculation exams and thus 
entered McGill University. The School wishes "Moff" much good 
luck in his future life. 

Robertson, R. R. ('49-'51). Ron came to Brent House and soon 
became one of the most popular New Boys of his year. He tried 
out for the first football team, but due to his misfortune of suffering 
a concussion, he could not continue. During his New-Boy year, he 
gained fame with his trumpet and the next year he helped to lead 
many sing-songs in the dining hall. He played for the first hockey 
team as well, and won his colours in his last year. In his final year 
also, he became a House Prefect, and as leader of the band, he made 
it one of the most outstanding in the School's history. We are sure 
he will have success at McMaster University where he is continuing 
his studies. 

Taylor, C. P. B. ('48-'51). Chas cantered into Brent House from 
the Junior School in 1948 with a racing form under one arm and a 
slide-rule under the other. He played Littleside football in first year 
but forsook that sport to spend more time in developing his mind. 
He was a member of the Dramatic and Debating Societies and in his 
last year was a member of the Debating Team. Sunday evenings, 
he was to be found in the Guild Room acting in the capacity of Presi- 
dent of the Political Science Club. These evenings stood him in good 
stead, for on Speech Day, among other awards, he won the Political 
Science Prize. After serving the usual apprenticeship, Charlie was 
elevated to the position of Sports Editor of the Record. Chas was 
an ardent football fan and did a fine job of managing the champion- 
ship football team. A baseball enthusiast, when not breaking sun 
lamps with his baseball bat, he was swinging it on the diamond 
with the rest of the boys. On top of these activities he found time 
to be secretary of the School Council. His appointment as House 
Prefect was well deserved and we all send our best wishes to him at 

Martin, P. G. ('48-'51). Pete moved his kit to Top Dorm Brent 
from the J.S. in 1948. In his first term he proved himself to be a 
football player "par excellence" winning the Dunbar Russell award 

for the Most Promising Player on Littleside. The following year he 
played on Bigside, winning his colours, and also was a mainstay of 
last year's Championship Team. Duiing the winter afternoons one 
was able to find him in the gym. playing "fausty-ball" or paddling in 
the swimming pool. In both these sports he won his Middleside 
colours. Peegee's fame was not bounded by athletics. He was one 
of the more scholarly boys of his year. He was a member of the 
Debating Society and of the Political Science Club. Perhaps his most 
notable achievement was his winning the London Daily Mail award, 
a trip to a Commonwealth students' seminar in Great Britain. His 
essay, we have told, was head and shoulders above those submitted 
by the other Canadian contestants. Pete was the second Trinity boy 
to win this award in the three years it has been offered. He was a 
House Prefect and he well deserved to be one. Our best wishes go 
out to him in his studies at Carleton College and we hope that he will 
visit us often. 

Humphreys, R. T, C. ('48-'51). Bob came to Trinity from Wash- 
ington in 1948. He quickly became established in Brent and was soon 
known as a boy who had a constantly cheerful disposition. The only 
event ever known to upset Bob was the persistent tapping on a drum 
in the room next to him. When midnight approached, and the fanatic 
drummer was still hammering away, we have heard that Bob often 
wished to go in and make kindling wood out of drums, drumsticks 
and drummer! Bob played on the rugby team in his final year and 
earned his half first team colours in this sport. In the winter he 
very capably managed the Bigside hockey team and won his Middle- 
side colours on the swimming team. In the .spring he proved himself 
tc be a very speedy runner on Sports day. He was a member of the 
Choir, the Record staff and the Debating Club, and could always be 
found on a Sunday evening attending meetings of the Political 
Science Club strongly upholding the cause of his native U.S.A. He 
was made a House Prefect for his excellent record here, and at the 
end of the year was awarded the prize for Good Spirit and Achieve- 
ment. Bob is continuing his studies at Princeton, and all of us who 
knew him will miss him greatly. 

MacGrejfor. J. D. ('47-'51). "T" came to the School from Nova 
Scotia in the fall of 1947, and set about to prove to the School that 
a deficiency in size is no handicap in the field of athletic achievement, 
when the determination to do well is present. In the fall of 1949 he 
played on Middleside football and won his extra colours, and in that 
same year was the winner of the Oxford Cup race. That winter he 
played on the first hockey team and was awarded his extra colours. 
The next year he was barred from entering the Oxford Cup race be- 
cause of a heart ailment, but he again won his first team hockey 
colours in the winter. "T" was a sacristan, one of the School's House 
Prefects and also a member of a very enthusiastic group of athletes, 


who in the last term amazed us all with their ability on the baseball 
diamond. Jim was the type of boy that Trinity likes to have, and 
hates to have leave. We wish him the best of luck at R.M.C. where 
he is now studying. 

Emery, J. E. (•48-'51). "Fox", a native of London, Ontario, skied 
his way into Bethune House after three-quarters of 1948 had elapsed, 
and proceeded to show the School the fine art of sheing, (Ed. note. 
Typographical error, for 'sheing' read 'skiing'.) as it had never been 
demonstrated before. Seriously though, "Fox" was one of the best 
skiers the School has ever had, and in his stay here he carried off 
both the Strong and Sifton trophies for that sport. When there 
wasn't any snow on the ground, J.ohn found time to win his colours 
on last year's championship football team, and also to win his Middle- 
side colours in swimming. In his final year he won the Bradburn 
Cup by some very smooth and graceful boxing which completely out- 
witted all his opponents. John also proved to be an extremely 
versatile track and field competitor and he thus won the Daykin Cup 
for having the highest senior aggregate last sports day. He also 
kept a few spare moments to add his voice to the choir, and to fulfil 
his role as House Prefect. John and his skis have now taken leave 
of our hallowed halls to attend another seat of learning, namely. 
Queen's University. Bona Fortuna, "Vulpes". 

Cooper, W. O. N. ('47-51). North came to Trinity with his back 
coloured a deep golden brown from the Bermudian sun, and was 
shocked to find that in this Arctic climate there was not enough sun 
to keep that tan, except for a few weeks of every year. However, 
he made the sacrifice and decided to stay, becoming one of the best- 
liked and most energetic boys in the School. Coming from the south, 
he naturally played the sports that would be the greatest reminders 
of the life he left behind him. He played on the soccer team for two 
years, winning his colours both years; he played on the first cricket 
team for three years and was awarded his colours in his last two 
years; and finally, he won his first swimming team colours for two 
years, and was one of the main factors in the overwhelming victory 
of that team in the Little Big Four. However, in North's last year a 
startling event occurred. He deserted the soccer team, played on 
the Championship Rugby Team, and managed to win his Middleside 
colours. In his last year he was in the Choir and also a House Prefect. 
Our best wishes and hopes for the future follow him back to Bermuda. 

Adamson, A. C. A. ('43-'51). When Adder moved up from the 
Junior School in the fall of 1947, the most noticeable feature about 
him was the great quantity of cameras and assorted photographic 
equipment di'aped about his body in a very official manner. Adder 


soon proved to be an excellent photographer, and in his final year 
he was President of the Photographic Society, and did all the arrang- 
ing of pictures for "The Record". Umberding (the source of that 
name is an eternal mystery) also made good use of his vocal chords 
and was one of the best voices in the bass section of the Choir, sing- 
ing the solo at the Christmas Carol Service. In the field of sports, 
Adder was a cricket and soccer fan. winning his Middleside Colours 
in both these sports. Weekday evenings often found Adder turning 
out lights in his capacity as House Officer, but on Sundays he was 
always found in the Guild Room attending the Political Science Club. 
We wish Adrian the best of luck in his studies at Trinity College. 

Allan, (i. A. ( 49-'51). George came into mid-dorm Trinity as 
part of the overflow from Brent in the fall of '49. At the beginning 
of the year he was handicapped by his inability to wield a pillow, 
but after his first term he became one of the best. He was a promin- 
ent member of the Honourable Order of the Smoker, and he and his 
wit were always welcomed everywhere. All who took part in the 
sing-songs and football-rallies were indebted to George for his excep- 
tional ability at the piano, nor could the paiticipants of the minstrel 
show last Christmas forget the long hours that George spent in 
accompanying their songs. Before leaving us George won his Middle- 
side football colours and was a yearly threat on sports day, especially 
in high-jumping. Although George was only with us for two years, 
he will long be remembered by all who knew him, and even now one 
can hear stories being told of some of George's daring escapades 
after "lights out". Be good, George. 

Arklay, J. T. ('47-'51). Ark came to Brent House in 1947 and 
at once began to prove himself an excellent athlete. He played soccer, 
hockey and cricket and did well in all of them. In his final year, 
Ark played football for the First Team and got his colours. During 
the hockey season he played in the net for the First Team. He proved 
to be an excellent goal tender for which he was awarded his colours. 
Cricket was one of Ark's favorite sports and he played with Big- 
side for two years and was awarded his colours. In both years he 
won half first team colours in the annual Oxford Cup race. In addi- 
tion, he served as typist for the Record and during the year received 
an appointment as House Officer. We wish him luck at McGill and 
know he will continue to do well in all activities he undertakes. 

Bonnycastle, R. A. N. ('48-'51). Upon arriving at Trinity, the 
Tun seemed to have acquired an excessive amount of muscle ( ? ) and 
we wondered how he could possibly have gained that surplus ma- 
tei'ial in the primitive life that people live in that extremity of Canada 
called Winnipeg. However, we soon discovered that the Tun was 






'^M M 









capable of transporting himself trom place to place with surprising 
speed and agility, and this fact was proved when Tun was awarded 
ji Distinction Cap for his excellent line-play on the Championship Foot- 
ball Team. He was one of the best linemen Trinity has seen in a 
long time and the only drawback was trying to find a pair of football 
pants that wouldn't be ripped to shreds after he had taken ten steps. 
Dick was versatile on ice as well as on the gridiron, and last winter 
he was vice-captain of Middleside Hockey, and helped to lead it to 
an unbeaten season. We believe that Dick has gone back to the 
wilderness of Winnipeg, and we hope that he will fulfil the glowing 
stories of what HE was going to do for Winnipeg. 

Brierley, J. D. M. ('47-'51). Jim penetrated the halls of Bethune 
in 1947 and decided that he would enliven the already noble atmos- 
phere around him. This he did, and before he left he managed to 
become an important member of the School in both extra-curricular 
activities and sports. He was a member of the Political Science Club, 
the Debating Society and "The Record" staff. He played on the first 
football team, and it was only an injury that he received in exhibi- 
tion games that kept him out of the Little Big Four games. He 
also played on the Senior Basketball team and was given his Middle- 
side colours. Jim was made a House Officer in his final year, and 
we are confident that he will do very well at McGill. where he has 
now registered. 

Butterfield, N. T. ('47-'51). Than landed in Bethune House in 
J 947 from the blessed isle of Bermuda, via the Junior School. He 
was a good athlete, a fine sport, and exceptionally outstanding at 
swimming. Last year when T.C.S. won the Little Big Four swim- 
ming meet. Than was the mainstay of our team winning three of the 
four races which he entered and coming second in the fourth. For 
this remarkable record he was awarded a Distinction Colour and the 
cup for the best swimmer. Than was also Vice-Captain of the First 
Soccer Team on which he played for three years. He is now studying 
in Toronto, and we wish him the best of luck in his future life. 

Davis, P. A. ('49-'51). "Chappy" arrived in 1949, and although 
no one noticed him at first, the faint squeakings of his violin coming 
from top flat Trinity, soon changed this state of affairs. During his 
stay here, Middleside soccer and Gym. teams were aided by his 
presence, but being an Englishman, ( who had somehow been shuffled 
to Calgary), his favorite sport was rugger. He organized many 
excellent games of this sport, although most of the School preferred 
to watch, than be thrown into the midst of the fray. He was also a 
Record typist and during the year became appointed a House Officer. 
We \yish him the best of luck in his studies at McGlll. 


Denny, J. P. {'il-'5l). Pete arrived in Brent House in the fall 
of '47 after a short stay of one year in the J.S. He started in the 
Fourth Form, and by tlie time he left, the highest form in the School 
had claimed him as an above average student. Pete snared a coveted 
room on Bottom Flat in his last year (nearest to the dining-hall — fine 
for those who are late for breakfast), and he was often heard wear- 
ing down his desk, lampshade, toaster, radio, and sometimes even 
his collection of drums, with his never ending drumming. Whenever 
he wasn't occupied in practising for the orchestra, he was engaged 
in one of his numerous bitter squash battles with Chas. Taylor or 
his roommate, Peter Morse. Pete -was on the Record staff and took 
part in the Minstrel show last Christmas, (naturally on the drums). 
Always a hard worker, Pete did well in his Senior Matric and we 
wish him the best of luck at Trinity College, where he is studying 
Commerce and Finance. 

DuMoulin, W. A. ('49-'51). T.C.A. delivered this package of 
energy to T.C.S. in January 1949. After sneaking in the back door 
of Brent House "Willie" began a very active two and a half years. 
In his second year he played Middleside football and basketball. In 
his last year he starred at Bigside soccer and senior basketball and 
on Sports Day he set a record for the cricket ball throw which may 
stand for many years. Besides his athletic interest. Bill was a mem- 
ber of the Senior Debating Society and a faithful member of the 
"Smoker". Now that he has returned to the West to study at U.B.C., 
his driving spirit and keen sense of humour will be greatly missed by 
all who knew him. 

Emery, V. S. ('49-'51). Vic plodded in from London and refresh- 
ed the atmosphere of Trinity House with his presence. He imme- 
diately set about devoting his budding skills to becoming a popular 
New Boy, and succeeded very well — that is, of course, if we except 
the opinion of his fagmasters on a few trying occasions. In his 
second year, he played Middleside football, getting his extra colours. 
In the winter he occupied himself with Middleside swimming and Rab- 
bit hockey, where he tore around the ice with reckless abandon. Dur- 
ing his first year he played Junior basketball, getting his Littleside 
colours. Vic's name was synonymous with skiing, and he was, to say 
the least, excellent at it. During his final year he came second in both 
the cross-country and downhill and slalom events. Vic did very well 
in his Senior Matriculation examinations and our best wishes go with 
him to Queen's University. 

Farley, W. J. (^IS-'Sl). Bill came to the J.S. in 1945 and after 
spending three years there graduated to the Senior School in the fall 
of 1948. In the following years he worked his way up the football 
chain and in his last year he played on the Championship First Team, 


winning his half first team colours. In his fifth form year, he plaj'ed 
on Middleside hockey team as goahe, but he gave up this sport in 
his final year in favour of his studies. He was made a House Officer 
in his last year, and he became known, much to his concern, as the 
possessor of a weekly subscription to Life magazine, which was widely 
read through the School, and usually before Bill had a chance to look 
at it himself. However, he was very patient with the offenders and 
was never known to stir up a row over a temporarily missing issue. 
Bill is now continuing his studies in Trenton and we wish him every 
success in the future. 

Gossage, C. B M. ('49-*51). Brent House first saw Mike as a 
New Boy in the fall of 1949. It did not take him long to make his 
mark, however. In his first year, he played extremely well for Middle- 
side football and hockey, crowning his success with a first team 
cricket colour. He was awarded the first year Challenge Trophy for 
these accomplishments. Mike's last year at Trinity saw his para- 
mount achievement in athletics. He won a Distinction Cap in foot- 
ball, starring on the Championship First Team. He followed this 
up by captaining the second hockej' team, and spurring them on to 
a brilliant undefeated season. Mike's final athletic success came when 
he won his First Team cricket colours for the second year, and his 
wicket-keeping was a great asset to the Championship Team. Though 
no marked genius academically, Mike kept on plugging at his work 
with the same drive he exhibited on the athletic fields. He was made 
a House Officer, and at the end of the year he was awarded the Second 
Year Challenge Trophy; this and the previous award show how whole- 
heartedly Mike entered into every phase of school life. We all wish 
him luck in his Forestry Course at the University of New Brunswick, 
and we hope he visits us often. 

Hanson, D. A. ('49-*51). Derek came to 
us from Selwyn House in September '49, and 
soon became known around the School as a 
boy who could obtain an excellent rank in 
his studies without seeming to put any extra 
effort into his work. He played Littleside soccer 
and football, and was an ardent member of 
the Rabbit Hockey League. In his last year he 
was a House Officer, and a member of the 
Senior Debating Society, winning the debating 
prize. Derek finished his career at T.C.S. with 
a flourish, carrying off the sixth form Latin 

and History prize and a prize for Special Distinction in the sixth 

form. We wish him the best of luck at McGill. 

Harris, W. G. ('47-'51). "Lippy" Harris arrived at T.C.S. in the 
fall of 1947 and soon became known as a good athlete although he 


didn't play sports a great deal. He played Bigside Football in his 
final year and won his Middleside Colours. During the winter term 
he was a member of the swimming team and won his Middleside 
Coloiu-s in that sport also. Lippy also took part in other School acti- 
vities and was one of the hard working Record assistants among 
other things. Although not an outstanding student, he did very well 
in his Upper School papers through hard work. Bill is going to 
in his Upper School papers through hard work. Bill is now studying 
in Toronto and we know he will be as successful there as he has been 

Hunt, P. S. ('48-'51). Peter came up to the Senior School from 
the Junior School in the fall of 1948, and immediately became one 
of the most popular boys in the School. Herbie was the type of boy 
that always did a little more work than he was asked to do, and this 
proved extremely helpful when he voluntarily took over most of 
the sports section of "The Record" in the final term when he did not 
have to write the Senior Matric. examinations. He joined the Poli- 
tical Science Club as well as "The Record" and was second only to 
Bob Humphreys in upholding the merits of his native U.S.A. In his 
last year he was on the Championship rugby team and won his First 
Team swimming colours that winter. At the end of the year Herbie 
was very justly awarded the prize for Keenness in Athletics. All our 
best wishes follow him to William's College. 

Hylton, P. R. ('48-'51). Pausing for two years in the Junior 
School, Leo landed in the Senior School in 1948. In his New Boy 
year he distinguished himself by captaining Littleside B Football, 
and breaking his arm. He was captain of Littleside football and an 
executive of the Junior Debating Society in his second year. In his 
last year he played on Bigside soccer, earning his extra first team 
colours. In the winter Leo was elected co-captain of Middleside basket- 
ball and in the summer term vice-captain of Middleside cricket. In 
extra-curricular activities, Peter was the School news editor of "The 
Record," and was active in the Dramatic Society, playing in both "The 
Housemaster", and "The Ghost Train". He was also a member of the 
Political Science Club and the Senior Debating Society. For his 
varied contributions to School life Leo was made a House Officer in 
his final year. This year he is at R.M.C., where we know he will do 

Maclnnes, B. W. ('48-*51). "Ginner" came to Trinity in the fall 
of '48, and although he was not an outstanding athlete, he accom- 
plished some extra-curricular work for which the School will long be 
grateful. When the "Record" moved down to the Old Senior's Com- 
mon Room, Bev undertook the job of sorting and cataloguing the 
immense heap of cuts and plates used by the Record during the last 


fifty years. Aside from this, Bev was also a Librarian and a mem- 
ber of the Middleside soccer team. In the winter, "Ginner" was often 
seen flashing (?) up and down the ice as a member of Mr. G.-T.'s 
Rabbit Hockey League. Bev has left us for a year of school in Switzer- 
land and we hope he enjoys hi.s year abroad. 

Martin, K. A. W. ('47-'51). "Wonny"' arrived from Montreal in 
1947 and made his home in Bethune House. In his first year he won 
his hockey and football colours on Littleside. He proved himself to 
be a strong long-distance runner and in his second year he won the 
Oxford Cup in a brilliant display of cross-country running. In the 
following years Ken also won his Middleside football and hockey 
colours and in his last year he was a very able coach of one of the 
Littleside football squads. Ken found time to enter into squash and 
tennis also, and last year was the runner-up in the senior tennis 
tournament. He always entered into School activities with good spirit 
and keenness and he was made a House Officer in his final year. He 
is now studying at McGill and we are sure he will achieve success 

McKim, A. R. ('49-'51). "Kim", an ardent supporter of his native 
Montreal, quickly made himself known in the halls of Brent, and be- 
came one of the most popular New Boys of '49. In his first year at 
the School he played on Littleside football and Middleside cricket, 
receiving his colours in football. Injury alone kept him off the 1951 
championship football squad, but nevertheless he filled the role of 
manager very capably. Never a man to be kept out of things, he 
was a member of the Political Science Club, Dramatic and Debating 
Societies, as well as being on the Record staff. In the off seasons, 
"Ungus" showed himself to be a capable squash and tennis player. 
For his keen participation in School life and for his friendly nature, 
Kim was made a House Officer in his final year. All our best go with 
him in his year abroad at the International School in Switzerland. 

McLaren, \V. S. C. ("49-51). Bill came to us from Hillfield in 
Hamilton and went into the fifth form in the fall of '48. In his first 
year he played football on the Littleside B squad and was awarded 
colours in Bantam basketball. Also in this year he began to show 
signs of becoming the excellent mathematician that he was in the 
sixth form. In VIA in his second year, he ran in the Oxford Cup 
Race and won his half-colours. He played Middleside soccer and 
was awarded his colours in this also. A member of the first team 
basketball, he received his Middleside colours. On Speech Day, his 
ability in Mathematics was recognized, when he won both the Jubilee 
Exhibition and Governor-General's Medal for this subject. A boy 
who was liked by all, he had a well-filled career at T.C.S. and is con- 
tinuing his studies at U. of T. 


Miti-hell, D. P. ('iS-'Sl). "Mitch" arrived at T.C.S. in 1948, Jarvis 
Collegiate's gift to the School. Though never an outstanding athlete, 
Mitch was a member of Middleside football. Last year he played a 
prominent part in School athletics by coaching Littleside "B". Mitch 
was a good swimmer and earned his Middleside swimming colours 
in his last year. He also had many jobs around the School. He 
was Secretary of the Photographic Society, and as School electrician 
he was in sole command of the lights for the stage. He was Head 
Choir boy and led the singing of the Choir with much vigor. Mitch 
carried out the responsibilities of these posts with good spirit and 
hard work. He was well-liked throughout the School and for his 
efforts he was rewarded in his final year by being made a House 
Officer. Mitch is now back at Jarvis and we wish him the best of 

Morse, P. W. ('47-'51). Pete was affiliated with the School from 
the day he was born. This memorable occurrence took place in Port 
Hope, and Pete has been with us ever since. The son and grandson 
of former Trinity masters, Pete first arrived in the School some ten 
years ago. During his sojourn in the Junior School, his family moved 
to Ottawa. When he entered the Senior School in '47, he at once 
proceeded to play soccer. This eagerness won him the second team 
captaincy in his final year, and, in this capacity, he proved a great 
asset to the team. Pete was often seen going to and from the squash 
courts, and he was reputed to be better than average at this sport 
by the time he left us. Throughout his years at T.C.S. , Pete was 
always a good sport, an eager learner, and an all-round good fellow. 
We all join in wishing him success in the field in which he chooses 
to make his career. 

Parfitt, J. M. ('49-'51). We well remember the blustery Septem- 
ber evening that the Senior School sought shelter from a pack of 
yelping huskies. Even three hours later, after they knew it was just 
"Patui" Parfitt dogsledding in from Schumacher, they were still afraid 
to peer out from underneath their beds. However, in practically no 
time at all, "Smiling John" was close to the hearts of all who knew 
him. His squash battles with other members of Bottom Flat were 
followed closely until the day came when the doctor ran out of stitches 
to sew up those who had been vanquished by this mighty swinger, 
and no one else would dare play against him. In his more serious mo- 
ments John was a Sacristan and member of the Choir for two years. 
He left wearing a Middleside colour-sweater for both rugby and bas- 
ketball, and with the distinction of being made a House Officer, an 
honour he deserved well. He is now studying Medicine at Western. 
Easy on the huskies, now, "Patui". 


Riimball, J. S. ('50-'51). When Happy Herm came to T.C.S. he 
put Kirkland Lake on the map in more ways than one way. Jim 
was very interested in many activities and we all regret that he only 
stayed for one year. He was especially interested in music and was 
in his glory at the sing songs. Jim also helped organize the School 
orchestra. In the fall he tvu-ned his talents to football and his accor- 
dian; in winter, to hockey and his clarinet; and in spring to studying 
and his drumming in the School band. For his efforts in both foot- 
ball and hockey he received Middleside colours. In his studies Jim 
proved to be one of the mathematical brains of last year's sixth 
form. The best wishes of the School follow Jim back to Kirkland 

Rutley. T. A, (•49-'51). When Tim came to Trinity in 1949, he 
moved straight from the Dramatic Society of Selwyn House into the 
Dramatic Society of T.C.S. The result was that last Easter we saw 
a very attractive girl turning in an excellent performance in one of 
the leading roles of "The Ghost Train". On closer examination we 
discovered that this female was a well disguised male in the person 
of Tim. He also found time to add his voice to the tenor section of 
the Choir, and attend the Political Science Club, where he became 
known as a person who could always put forward a sensible and well- 
thought- '>ut argument. He was also a member of the Debating 
Society and won his exti'a Middleside colours in soccer. We know 
that Tim will do very well at McGill, where he is studying engineering. 

Stewart, D. H. ('49-'51). Hamish came from Montreal in the 
fall of 1949. and it did not take him long to gear himself to school 
life. He took a keen interest in sports, earning his colours in Middle- 
side soccer, and basketball. His extra-curricular activities were 
many, and as a member of the Debating Society, the Political Science 
Club, and "The Record", he entered whole-heartedly into the more 
serious side of school life. An ardent baseball fan, he could always 
be found organizing games on the School's makeshift diamond in 
the spring. Of all his characteristics, Hamish's greatest asset was 
his own likeable nature and his keen wit which enabled him to make 
light of any difficult situation that arose. We are confident that 
Hamish will make a success of his life at Bishop's University where 
he is studying this year. 

Walker, J. W. ('50-'51). Willie came into the sixth form in the 
rail of 1950, and although he was only with us for one year, he be- 
came a well-liked and prominent figure around the School. He played 
on the first basketball team and was awarded a Middleside colour 
at the end of the season. When the spring finally came around, the 
School discovered that Bill was an extremely ardent baseball fan, 


and he could often be found in the aftei'noon knocking out balls to 
aspiring young fielders, or taking part in an impromptu game. Bill 
has left us to go to the University of Toronto and we know that he 
will have continued success in his studies there. 

Williams, A. R. ('43-'51). Willie came to the Junior School in 
1943 and immediately began to train himself to become one of the 
School's best gymnasts. When he came up to Bethune House in 
1947, he proceeded to work his way from Littleside to Bigside Gym. 
and won his colours in his last year. In the fall, Willie found time 
to turn out for the Middleside soccer team where he played very well, 
winning his colours at the end of the season. He was impeded some- 
what in his final year by finding himself captive to a certain Bermu- 
dian native, but managed to survive and fulfil excellently the duties 
of Bethune House Officer. We wish him the best of luck in his 
future studies. 



to be rearranged after one of our recent entertainments. 
Apparently these poor three PICKED-ON souls have to 
CREEP about and shut windows in the early morn' for a 
while, as well as fix up the hall ALONE next time. They'll 
probably all get sick and retire to the hospital! It's the 
only way out! 

In BRENT the FIRST- YEARS were all very HAPPY, 
for they haven't been allowed to run around the track in 
the grey dawning, but then "CLUB" SEAGRAM devised 
OUT" .... so now they're always seen with wet eyes and 
streaked faces; too much early cramming??? 


"Trrrrrrra! — Trrrrrrrrra!" 

"About turn! Quick march! Left, right, left, right, 
left, right, left ..." 

The clanking of the trumpeters echoed fainter and 
fainter along the stone-vaulted hall, finally dying away 
around a corner. It was Camelot, the great capital town of 
Betuness, that glorious country of knights and damsels, far, 
far from the land of the thousand gum trees. And here, 
the greatest of the great, the Knights of the Round Table 
were beginning to gather in the grand conference hall. First 
entered Llancellot, Master of House, who handled all pro- 
cedural matters during the session. This famous knight 
had crushed several barbaric risings in the wild peat bogs 
of far-western Wales, and for his services had received the 
coveted title, "Squire of Llanfihangelland". Next to come 


was a tall debonnaire knight, Lord of the Intelligence De- 
partment. An excellent gleaner of information, he knew the 
activities of every knight. Indeed, when the need arose, he 
up and invented the Dewey Duo-Decimal System of cata- 
loguing rescued damsels (which were plentiful, due to the 
abundant supply of dragons about the castle). There came 
many other knights also: Merlin, famed originator of those 
awful Ancient and Mediaeval Mystery Lessons — bought 
and now used by Llancellot — and Merlin's followers, dread 
dwellers of the castle's Cellars of Smoke; and there came 
others also, striding forward in their shining red and ma- 
roon armour with the crest of the double white strip. But 
there v/ere the lesser of the thousand and one knights; they 
had not ventured with Sir Llancellot in the quest of the Holy 
Grain ; nor had they followed on those secret roams in the 
stilly knight. 

Suddenly a hush fell over the assembled heroes. Two 
soft taps sounded at the door, and in strode the greatest 
Knight of all, "Arthur!" This was indeed the famous man 
who had become king, years ago, by drawing a heavy sword 
out of the magic scabbard of a huge stone statue (Quite 
simple if you let the coefficient of friction approach zero and 
divide by x while you're waiting.) At his side gleamed the 
mighty brand Excaliber which had thrust itself up at him 
from the middle of his bath-tub years ago. 

The meeting quickly came to order after a short grace 
by Sir Llancellot, which in those heroic days, had been 
shortened to the monosyllabic, "Huh!" Then came Arthur's 
stirring address, beginning with the knightly words, "Good 
evening". Discussion ensued and the meeting was in full 
swing. As usual, diplomatic relations broke down over the 
division of damsels to be rescued in the following week. 
Unorganized jousting began in one corner, shouting filled 
the air; the Round Table was over-turned in chivalrous 
argument, and the knightly conference of the famous King 
Arthur's Knights came to another knightly end amid knight- 
ly oaths. 


As the candles were extinguished and the chaotic room 
darkened, one lone knight was to be seen surreptitiously 
carving his name in the Round Table. 


We have heard it said recently by a notorious member 
of Bethune that nothing interesting ever happens in Brent. 
We get up each morning, are on time for breakfast, live 
the normal school day, and are on time for bed. Disgrace- 
ful. However, on close inspection, we find, when Brent 
takes time out from winning nearly every House Cup offered 
for competition, that underneath the battle dress of the 
various inhabitants, there are a multitude of individuals 
who rate more than the passing comment that will be given 

On Middle Flat there has appeared this year, a very 
prominent scientist under the cognomen of CRAN, who 
seems to spend all of his spare hours making invisible strips 
of glass on his homemade glass blower, (a candle and some 
lung power) and then looking at them under a microscope. 
No doubt it is fascinating. This same flat is the source of 
a large amount of controversy in the House, as to who has 
the better decorated room, DEPOO & M.H. or MIKE & 
ERIC? We are inclined to feel that the former has the 
better string of pennants, while we like MIKE'S FLAG 
better than M.H.'S. MIKE'S has a special appeal to a flag- 

We interrupt these notes by a piece of information 
that has just been brought to the author. BLACKY IS 
DEAD. Some cruel hunter got him dead in his sights 
(pardon me!) in the Port Hope park and just couldn't re- 
sist. To go along with this bit, we have at the same time 
heard lamentations from a prominent member of Bottom 
Flat, who regrets that his last words to BLACKY went 
something like this:— "«&%$()XX ?$%"**&**". It seems 
that BLACKY crawled in his window in the very early 


morning, and mistook the occupant for a FISH. Hence 
the above quotation. 

Has anyone in the house NOT heard about SPIKE'S 
CARS and his part ownership in a RESTAURANT? We 
are all hoping that he is going to give us free meals when 
we visit his eathouse on the other side of the continent. We 
also ask him if he has yet decided to decorate it as a sea- 
side snack bar or a polar-bear's den. 

There are a few pieces of INCIDENTAL INTEL- 
LIGENCE around the House this month .... Local maga- 
zine counter is again WES' ROOM .... DAVISON and 
OSLER seem to be fond of getting up early these morn- 
ings . . . Couldn't have been forced upon them,, could it? 
. . . NOBODY in BRENT was dumb enough to CHEW a 
BIGSIDE FIZZ-PILL .... and finally, WHY is JOHN 
BOARD always late for football practice? 

Let us conclude by returning to our first statement 
about Brent always being on time for bed and breakfast. 
The truth is. Brent is lazy. They are so lazy that they 
like to be on time so that they can sit and watch Bethunites 
plod feverishly around the track.

The 8.20 was never on time, that was an accepted fact. 
If you arrived five, ten, even fifteen minutes late the Com- 
mutor Special would still be there, George, the conductor, 
alternately swearing at and placating the fidgety, stuffy, 
sleepy, bored passengers. But whatever time it left some- 
how the Special always drew in at Central Station at ten 
to nine, the mad scramble for taxis and buses started, and 
another working day had begun. But today something 
had gone wrong; the Special left on time, leaving a confused 
cluster of late arrivals in the waiting room. About twenty 
nondescript commutors sat on the hard benches, staring 
and glaring at the fly-specked travel ads. 

Among the waiting passengers sat a shabby, gawky, 
man, waiting for what, he didn't know, just thinking. Sam 
Turner figured his work was gone now. After all, old 
Bailey had told him, "Once more late and you're out of a 
job." Aw well, Bailey was a rat anj^way, always expect- 
ing a man to be on time, do this, do that, all day long, 


serve him right if his best cutter didn't turn up. Stupid 
job anyway, cutting piles of ugly cloth into cheap dresses. 
He had meant to quit years ago, but you know how it is, 
you get into a rut, too lazy to get out, and there you are — 
sixty bucks a month for the rest of your working days, 
pensioned off, given a gold-plated watch, and told to scram 
when you're too old. 

Another commutor, Mr. Harragen (of Harragen and 
Harragen) was angry. What happens now, he wondered; 
that fool Pendelton can't possibly deal with Mr. Bigelow. 
A large order like that, and he has to be delayed. The 
one man who could put Harragen and Harragen in the 
black comes today, and Mr. Harragen is not there. Hope 
Pendelton knows roughly what to say; if he mentions the 
back taxes, Harragen and Harragen might as well fold up. 
On reviewing the situation he decided that folding up 
wouldn't be a bad idea. The firm, used to be good, the motto 
"Work to Win" used to mean something, used to, used to 
. . . . , all that was before the big crash. They had struggled 
out of the paralyzing depression somehow, by undercutting, 
under bidding, under selling. But the firm was not the 
same afterwards, the old drive and determination were 
gone, stagnation set in; crippling Corporation taxes and 
high tariffs had almost finished Harragen and Harragen. 
He didn't really care if the firm did collapse, he had always 
wanted to run a chicken farm. 

Beside Mr. Harragen sat Miss Pamela Sproaks, script 
writer for "Sally Parkins" (Monday through Friday, 
brought to you by Sudsy Soap). What a job, thought 
Pamela: John's brother's wife in love with Bill's pal's 
cousin, Bill about to marry Jane, and Jane loves John, 
week after week, until you had to marry some of them 
off or go crazy. Sure, things worked out in the end (plus 
two box tops) and everybody was happy. But that wasn't 
life, it was phony, cheap, artifical; nobody ever got hurt 
in the world of entertainment, nobody but those who pro- 
vided the entertainment "Miss" Pamela she thought, at 


thirty-nine, when the "Miss" starts sounding cynical, bit- 
ter, pitying, when life means six days a week of dirt, noise, 
confusion, morning and night, then eight hours of dirt, 
noise, confusion in a crowded studio of a filthy broom-closet 
office. That was life, and on top of that wondering whether 
to marry Jane to John, or put them all in a boat and drown 
the whole lot (Get your colourful drowning scene, for only 
two box tops). Yes, that was life. 

8.30 George, the conductor, might notice a few seats 
empty today, but there would always be some to take their 
places to-morrow. Meanwhile, twenty people sat in a 
crowded waiting room, thinking, analyzing, reminiscing . . .

Beyond the point a lonely lighthouse stands. 
Its rough-hewn tower above the ocean's roll. 
And flashes warning beams like helping hands 
To guide the shipping from the hidden shoal. 
Against this outpost come the foaming ranks 
That break and fall back from the sturdy walls. 
While spray, the blood of battle wets its flanks 
And liquid thunder drowns the sea-bird's calls. 
Above, the storm clouds loose to downward fly 
The wind-swept raindrops adding to the shock; 
And lightning tears apart the tortured sky 
To light the wave-crests dashing on the rock. 
The fortress still withstands the wind and rain 
And, winking, gleams the beacon yet again. 

— C. O. Spencer, VIA. 


He looked over the side at the six white runways form- 
ing two concentric equilateral triangles, now far below. He 
thought of the pleasant hours spent on test flights with 
Dave during the summer. A great lump welled up in his 


throat. Why had fate sent Dave screaming to earth in 
a twisted mass of useless fabric? Why couldn't he him- 
self have been the one? If he ever met the engineer who 
designed the wings for that plane he would settle the score. 
The lump in his throat disappeared. He recalled the 
instructor's indifference towards Dave's crash and realized 
for the first time that he hated the man. "Get up and 
show Mr. Westland his new plane can take it," was what 
he had said five minutes ago. Yes, he was always bragging 
about the ability of this plane and that plane and how much 
they could take. "I'd like to see how much he can take 
someday," he mused. 

He rubbed his eyes and searched the four quarters of 
the horizon above and below his level in preparation for 
his little "demonstration". Automatically he tightened his 
safety belt, throttled back and set the trim for glide. The 
horizon crept up above his nose and he abstractedly eased 
back the stick watching the airspeed ebb slower and slower. 
Wouldn't you be annoyed if your plane couldn't take it 
after all, Mr. Westland!" he grimaced while scrutinizing 
his instruments. Just before the stall he kicked on full 
left rudder and drew the stick back into his stomach. The 
ship yawed to the left, hung momentarily on its side, and 
thrashed downward in a spin. "I'll show them," he grinned 
as he felt gravity and centrifugal force tearing at his body 
in a hundred different directions. 4000' . . . 3500' . . . 2000'. 
The grin spread across his writhing face. Nine revolutions! 
He was losing consciousness. His tortured brain forced him 
to let the stick move forward and to stand on the right 
rudder bar. The plane ceased to revolve and plunged down- 
ward. He slowly pulled the stick back and summoned his 
remaining strength to look at his airspeed. The needle 
had swept several divisions past the red and yellow barrier. 
Air screamed past and tore at the feeble man-made struc- 
ture. Slowly, the nose approached the horizon. Seconds 
later he had neutralized the trim and was climbing under 
power. The wings had held!

Several ground mechanics released the compressed air 
from their lungs in various pitches. They sent up a green 
flare telHng him to land immediately, even before he had 
had sufficient time to clear his brain. "You bet I'll land," 
he responded, "But not where I have to cater to you . . . 
sir!" He dipped in acknowledgement, flew low over the 
hangars, and climbed slowly into the twilight, "You had 
better start looking for a new robot," he thought as he 
took a last look at the field. He headed due west towards 
his hometown, towards his wife and children, and towards 
a new livelihood. Yes, he would enjoy working in the 
small town. 

The plane soared high into the waning light, droned 
faintly, and disappeared into the sunset.

The twilight sun glances on shiny leaves 
Each one of which is green and full of life, 
Their sap coursing through their veins reprieves 
The gusty wind which threatens to join strife 
Against them in the cause of Autumn. 
The tree weakens as its fighting heart strives 
To grip the fickle leaves which are its crop. 
But gnarled and rusty, one by one, their lives 
Are slowly torn from them and they will drop. 
Fluttering to the dry parched earth.

"God bestows his gifts on certain people, often whose 
outward form may not be prepossessing, but whose inward 
beauty of mind and spirit shines forth in all they do." 

When I think of handicapped children, youths, and 
adults, I almost automatically remember this quotation. It 
is so very true. Experience has taught me, through living 


with a "cripple" all my life, and working with them for 
some time, that physical disability is not a hindrance to 
greatness of mind. The body, with all its defects, is no 
true guide to the soul. 

Unfortunately, my opinion is shared by only a few. 
Understanding in the world is sorely needed today, and in 
this respect is not found. Pity abounds. I have seen an 
adult woman weep at the sight of a cerebral palsied girl 
named Jeannie. "Oh that poor darling," she m|oaned. But 
Jean is not a "poor darling". Instead she is gifted re- 
markably with the ability to write, or at least dictate to 
someone who will write for her. This girl, twelve years 
old, bound to a wheel chair, with poor speech control, does 
not want pity. All that she asks is a chance to prove her 

"Just a kid." How often handicapped children have 
craved recognition as such! How seldom they receive it! 
It is because society, well-meaning, has blundered into the 
supposition that all handicapped individuals are freaks, 
pathetic and incurable. I do not find such a person a 
pathetic sight; indeed the fact that so many regard them 
in this way is pathetic in itself. If John Q. Public could 
stand by and see the results which the training of handi- 
capped children has achieved, he would be astounded and 
shaken to the bottom of his narrow and superstitious mind. 

It is not entirely the fault of our society that these 
children and youths are unable to adjust themselves to 
modern, conventional living. Often, far too often, the 
environment in which the particular individuals were 
brought up has an ill effect. I would chance an estimate 
of sixty percent, or more, cases. While it is perfectly 
natural for parents to protect their handicapped child, it is 
dangerous. Unless the child learns how to fend for him- 
self, becomes independent to a degree of constant attention 
(varying with disability) and teaches himself to face a 
cruel world and a fickle humanity, he is liable to become 
and remain a neurotic wreck. It has happened, and hap- 
pens every day. 


Much of the stigma associated with handicapped per- 
sons will disappear when we abolish that evil-sounding 
word "cripple". It suggests complete physical wreckage, 
and often includes the suggestion of mental disability as 
well. "Handicap", on the other hand, does not bring such 
a picture to mind. It depicts someone with a certain dis- 
ability, a specific drawback on normal condition, not a com- 
plete wreck. 

Pubhc ignorance, parental coddling, and the stinging 
use of one word — three seemingly unimportant matters — 
are doing more to keep handicapped persons out of society 
than their physical drawback. They want to lead a happy 
but useful life, giving their abilities to mankind, helping 
in the push towards Utopia. Yes, they want to. Why 
don't we let them?

Horatius Ebenezer Wotherbury was a small man with 
horn-rimmed glasses, and too big a nose. But he had a 
noble forehead, or so his mother had always said, which 
somewhat counteracted the narrow, sloping shoulders and 
long neck he had inherited from his father. He worked 
as a grocery store clerk with small pay and weary hours. 

At four o'clock on Monday, as usual, Horatius was 
adding up the accounts for Mr. Florian, occasionally frown- 
ing in perplexity. During one of these brief puckerings, 
he lifted his oblong head and stared out the window at the 
dully-roaring traffic, finally centering his gaze on the figure 
of a small girl about to cross the street. "Pretty," he 

He watched in growing anxiousness as the girl turned 
her head in the wrong direction and firmly stepped onto 
the street in front of an oncoming truck. 

Horatius did not waste a second. Thrusting Mr. 
Florian's books to the floor, he rushed out of the private 
office-door into the street, and wildly flung himself at the 
unsuspecting female. Suddenly aware of the truck, she 
let out a piercing scream; at the same time the chivalrous 
Horatius hit her in a flying tackle, and man and girl landed 
in a shapeless heap right in the path of the dangerously- 
near truck. There was a screech of brakes as the power- 
ful wheels swerved and passed over the tail end of Horatius* 

The girl looked at him in wide-eyed admiration and 
whispered: "You saved my life!" 


Horatius found her rather indistinct, having lost his 
glasses, but he smiled wanly, and then muttered with heroic 
modesty, "Oh, it was nothing." 

He soon found himself the centre of attraction as 
crowds of people helped him to his feet, and congratulated 
him, dusted off his coat. A man of large dimensions came 
up. "I must add that I have never seen anything quite so 

The latter part of this statement was said in a sonorous 
monotone, such as is used by men of political influence. 

Horatius next felt himself propelled to a black limou- 
sine, and was soon in a large building vaguely familiar as 

the city-hall. 

* * * * * 

Next morning, strolling to work, Horatius thought 
himself the most successful of men — he had gallantly res- 
cued a "damsel in distress", and had been decorated by the 
m^ayor — he complacently fingered the little silver medal 
hanging from his coat pocket. 

At the store he modestly set himself to work, receiving 
with a smile the numerous congratulations and handshakes. 
The gawky blonde with frizzled hair, at the cashier-box, 
goggled at him with unmistakable partiality, and Mr. 
Florian announced he would increase Horatius' salary by 
fifty cents a day. 

The afternoon wore on. Horatius looked in vain for 
more smiling glances — he even looked to see if the blonde 
was still goggling, but here again he was disappointed. He 
returned sadly to Mr. Florian' s accounts.

— E. A. Day, VA. 


It was just a year and five days ago that I came across 
a story written by a man whom I had never heard of before. 
It was among a collection of short stories by the famous 


author A. B. Lennon. The incredibility of it was quite 
fantastic, but since the time I read it, even more fantastic 
developments have taken place. I have always been par- 
tial to my belief in a God and a Devil, but now I am even 
more perplexed, or perhaps convinced. However, I will 
leave you to form youi- opinions from what I will now tell 
you. His story went something like this: 

"To-day I am terribly downhearted. Yesterday I was 
all enthusiasm for the future. Yesterday evening when I 
was sitting in a pub with my dearest friend, also a hope- 
ful writer, we were approached by a man who introduced 
himself as the devil. This immediately made him seem 
fantastic to us, and when he went on to propose that one 
of us be transported two hundred years forward in the 
realm of time, we considered him either crazy, or else com- 
pletely drunk. My friend decided to have no more of it 
and moved off to another table. However, this individual 
fascinated me, and I myself remained to hear him out. His 
proposition was this. As I was a young and hopeful writer, 
would I not be interested to see how famous I would be 
before I even started writing. He, the devil, would trans- 
port me two hundred years into the future for exactly one 
hour, which I would spend in a large public library reading 
about myself. Thinking as perhaps anyone else would have 
thought at the time, that he was slightly touched, I laugh- 
ingly agreed to meet him at exactly midnight outside the 
pub door. This strange being then left me and I joined 
the rest of my friends in a jovial conversation on what I 
should do in my hour in the future. Such fun did I miake 
of it all, that when midnight came around, my friends forced 
me to walk out of the door. You can imagine my terror, 
when, upon closing the pub door behind me, the darkness 
of the night was suddenly changed to bright sunshine. Fan- 
tastic noises filled the air; queerly dressed men and shock- 
ingly-clad women streamed past me in an endless proces- 
sion. Indeed, it was May the eleventh, nineteen hundred 
and fifty. I quickly turned to re-enter the door I had 


just left, and who should I find standing behind me but 
the devil himself. I was struck immovable by his leering 
smile. In a complete daze I followed his instructions and 
crossed the wide street that was filled with roaring horse- 
less carriages leaping by in both directions. I entered the 
large stone building and found myself in an enormous 
library. This reassured me a bit, but then I perceived all 
the curious stares that were aimed in my direction, and I 
was more terrified than ever. However, as the devil had 
told me that these people still spoke English and that the 
index system worked in a way with which I was already 
familiar, I felt somewhat reassured as I sat down to dig 
up my own past. 

"I cannot begin to explain all the feelings and thoughts 
that passed through my mind during that hour. All that 
I can say is that it was hell on earth. If it had not been 
for the devil I am sure that I would have been killed when 
I recrossed the street, but he guided me over and across to 
the door that I had originally come out of. In passing 
through it I found myself not in the pub again but in the 
deserted dark street outside the pub. Instead of returning 
to my friends, I went home and am now writing all this 
before I take my own life, for this was all I could find about 
myself: "An obscure writer, born 1727, died 1750, his only 
literary work worthy of mention was one about being 
tempted by the devil into the future. Unbelieved, and 
thought by everybody to be quite crazy, he took his own 
life.' So, you see, although I will never be believed by any- 
one, I have felt obliged to write what I have, and then to 
kill myself. The only way I will ever be able to prove that 
this story is true, and that I am not crazy, is to be seen 
by someone in that London library on May the eleventh, 
nineteen hundred and fifty, as, on that date, I shaU return 
to life to relive my sixty minutes there." 

This is the story that I read, and I made it my business 
to be in a certain London library on May the eleventh, nine- 
teen hundred and fifty, between the hours of twelve and 



At exactly twelve o'clock a young radically-dressed 
man walked nervously into the room. This, I thought, is 
only a strange coincidence. But my heart suddenly stopped 
beating for an instant as my horrified eyes watched this 
man thumb frantically through an encyclopaedia finally 
stopping at a name and the dates, which I surreptitiously 
glanced at over his shoulder: 1727-1750. Frightened I 
rushed from the room; but soon, recovering myself, I re- 
turned, and for one hour, sat in the opposite corner of the 
room staring in his direction. I knew it was he! 

At one o'clock he rose to his feet, moved across the 
room, and went out. I heard his footsteps running down 
the stairs and into the street. I sat stunned for a moment, 
and then dashed to a window. I was just in time to see 
him pass through the heavy traffic and cross the street, 
escorted by a leering guide . . . and a door open and close.

This year, T.C.S. is in a very unusual although not 
unpleasant position; that is, she is the possessor of three 
Little Big Four championship teams. This fall, she must 
defend one of these, the football championship; to do this, 
Mr. Hodgetts has built a team around a core consisting of 
seven old colours. The line is more evenly balanced than 
that of last year without any exceptionally heavy men, 
while the backfield has proven to be extremely versatile in 
all phases of football in the games to date. 

As of this writing, the Little Big Four schedule is but 
one week away and all the exhibition games have been 
played. The result of these has been favourable to some 
degree, not so much in the resulting score but in the type 
of game the team played. Many weaknesses were found 
in the play structure and these were amended; good points 
were discovered and strategy has been built around them. 
Trinity looked effective against Belleville in the last half 
of the game, but the first half could be described only as a 
half hour of "fumble-ball". Against Peterborough, the 
line was woefully weak and it was not until the last quarter 
of play that it began to put up any real opposition. The 
team began to work as a unit in the game with Oshawa 
and much tactical experience was gained. Trinity outplayed 


U.T.S. by a great, margin on the ground but it was clearly 
indicated that a T.C.S. pass-defense was almost non-exist- 
ent. The team showed that it had much depth against 
AfUalvern with the second string playing most of the game 
and proving themselves to be very strong especially along 
the line. 

It took a few games for a proper team spirit to be 
built up, but in the last few games it became quite apparent. 
Watts and McDerment have been elected co-captains and 
they are very worthy of their positions. The team has 
great capabilities and one can be assured that the Trinity 
team is going to be heard from this year. 

The Middleside Football team has been a very pleasant 
surprise so far this year. It has been some time since a 
Middleside team has started out so well and has looked so 
powerful. Team spirit, which has been lacking on that 
team for so many years, is quite evident and some future 
Bigside stars seem to be in the m,aking. Littleside, under 
the able coaching staff of Messrs. Landry, Hass and Dale, 
is also being developed into a well balanced team. 

Trinity sent a team to the newly formed Little Big 
Four Tennis Tournament and although we did not win, the 
team did give a good account of themselves by coming 

T.C.S. has a big year ahead of her and she must work 
harder than ever to make it the best year yet. She cannot 
rest on her laurels of last year, but must develop a proper 
spirit which can carry the School through many battles un- 
til victory has been achieved. If this can be done, I feel 
quite confident that nobody will be able to prevent T.C.S. 
from repeating her triumphs of last year.

Although we are unable to include accounts of the 
games, "The Record" congratulates the First Rugby Team 
on winning the Little Big Four Championship for the second 
successive year, with three well-earned victories. 




At Port Hope, September 26. Won 18-3. 

In their first game of the season, Bigside scored an 18-3 
win over Belleville. The first quarter opened very slowly, 
as both teams fumbled continually, and it took ten minutes 
for T.C.S. to gain a first down. Not much later, Clark went 
over for a touchdown on a good pass from McDerment who 
also converted. Soon afterwards on some fine running plays 
by Muntz, McDerm.ent and Coibourne, T.C.S. moved the ball 
up to the Belleville tv/enty-five yard line. From there, Currie 
went around the end on a reverse for the touchdown, with 
McDerment again converting. As the first quarter ended, 
T.C.S. was leading 12-0. Belleville pressed hard in the 
second quarter and when Trinitj^ fumbled behind their goal- 
line they scored a safety touch. The half ended with the 
score remaining 12-2 in favour of the home team. 

T.C.S. kicked off to start the second half and Belleville 
soon scored a rouge on a long kick by Greene. It was not 
until the fourth quarter that T.C.S. scored their final touch- 
down, RoUing from their own goal line, they pushed up 
the field on some good running plays and able quarter- 
backing by Gordon. Board then went over on a pass from 
McDerment who then kicked his third convert of the game. 
Shortly later McDerment made a spectacular seventy yard 
run only to have it called back by the officials. The game 
ended with the score 18-3. 

T.C.S.— Watts, Long, Phillips, LeVan, Dolph, Ryley i, Clark i, Mc- 
Derment, Seagram ii, Board, Currie, Jackman, Muntz, Coibourne i, 
Coibourne ii, West, Brine, McCullagh, MacKinnon. Bonnycastle, Arnold, 
Robertson, Crawford, Tice, Molson, Higgins. 


At Peterborouffh, September 29. Lost 29-0. 

In their second exhibition contest of the year, T.C.S. 
was soundly beaten by a stronger and more experienced 
team from Peterborough Collegiate 29-0. T.C.S. was slow 
in starting and organization was bad due to the split "T" 
formation used by Peterborough. 

In the first quarter, Young of Peterborough scored 
their first major, running around the right end from the 
fifteen yard line, and then converted. Peterborough scored 
again on a buck by Brown after Sanders had run to the 
T.C.S. five yard line on a pass. The convert was kicked 
by the scorer. In the second quarter Jensen and Brown 
carried the attack with the former scoring a touch through 
the line which was converted by Langhorne. T.C.S. then 
carried the ball down to the Peterborough one yard line 
but were held by a hard charging line. 

At the beginning of the second half, the T.C.S. line 
began to settle down; however, Young of Peterborough 
broke through the right end and ran forty-five yards for a 
major which he converted. Towards the end of the quar- 
ter T.C.S. was pressing with Doug Colbourne making some 
fine runs. In the final quarter Peterborough scored their 
final touchdown with Jensen intercepting a T.C.S. pass; the 
convert was blocked by Dolph. The game ended with T.C.S. 
pressing hard in the Peterborough end zone. Brown, 
Young and Jensen played extremely well for the winners, 
while Gord Currie, Hugh Watts and Doug Colbourne held 
the Trinity team together. 

T.C.S. — Watts, L/ong, Phillips, LeVan, Dolph, Ryley i, Clark i, 
Seagram ii. Board, Currie, Jackman, Muntz, Colbourne i, Colbourne ii, 
West, Brine. McCullagh, MacKinnon, Bonnycastle, Arnold, Robertson, 
Crawford, Tice, Molson, Higgins. 


At Port Hope, October 3. Won 28-20. 

In the third exhibition game of the year, Bigside edged 
out the Oshawa Collegiate team by a score of 28-20. 


Oshawa, as the visiting team, elected to receive the ball, 
and a short kick by Clark to the forty-seven yard line 
enabled Dolph to recover the ball. Three plays took Trinity 
to the Oshawa twenty yard line where a pass by McDer- 
ment to Clark gave T.C.S. a 5-0 lead. The attempted con- 
vert was blocked. T.C.S. then kicked off and a fumble 
in the Oshawa backfield again gave Trinity possession 
of the ball. A thirty-five yard run by Board on a reverse 
brought Trinity to the five yard line and a short run by 
Bob McDerment through the right side of the line gave 
Trinity their second major score. The convert kicked by 
the scorer brought the score to 11-0. 

Oshawa then began to put on the pov/er and after 
gaining possession of the ball, scored on a pass to Clarke. 
The convert attempt by Mozev/ski was not good. A series 
of passes and long runs by Muntz and McDennent brought 
T.C.S. within scoring distance once more, and McDerment 
went over easily for his second touchdown. His convert 
was successful thus making the score 17-5. Before the end 
of the quarter the visitors scored two quick touchdowns, 
the first on a pass to Mozewski, and the second after re- 
covering a very long kick-off behind the Trinity goal-line. 
The converts were not good on either score. 

In the second quarter Trinity tried its ground attack 
with successive runs McDerment, Muntz and Jackman 
bringing the ball deep into Oshawa territory where a line 
buck by McDerment boosted the Trinity total to 22-15. 
Again Trinity utilized their ground plays and towards the 
end of the half Muntz completed the T.C.S. scoring with a 
plunge across the Oshawa line. The convert by McDer- 
ment was successful. 

The second half was marked by weak offensive play- 
ing by both teams, neither making any notable yardage. 
Late in the fourth quarter, Oshawa gained considerable 
ground by passes and a short pass to Andronovich com- 
pleted the scoring in the game. 


In the first half, Trinity's offensive play, both aerial 

and on the ground, was very effective. McDerment's runs 

gave T.C.S. a majority of first downs. On the line, Phillips 

and Long tackled and blocked very well. In the second 

half, although not playing badly, no one was outstanding. 

Throughout the game, Mozewski was the best for the 


T.C.S. — ^LeVan, Long, Dolph, Phillips, Watts, Clark, Seagram, 
Board, Muntz, McDerment, West, Jackman, Higgins, Ryley, Col- 
bourne i, McCullagh, Crawford, Arnold, Robertson, MacKinnon, Molson, 
Tice, Gordon, Currie, Timmins. 

SCHOOL vs. U.T.S. 
At Port Hope, October 6. Lost 23-12. 

In the fourth exhibition game of the season, Bigside 
was defeated by U.T.S. 23-12. Trinity made the only score 
in the first quarter when Board intercepted a U.T.S. pass 
and ran it deep into the U.T.S. territory. Bob McDerment 
then scored on an end sweep and also made the convert. 
Early in the second quarter Norm Seagram picked up a 
U.T.S. fumble, but in the resulting plays, T.C.S. fumbled 
and U.T.S. recovered. This set up a touchdown by Mathews 
who also converted it. U.T.S. kicked off, but on the T.C.S. 
third down, McDerment ran fifty-five yards through the 
centre of the line for another touchdown which he con- 
verted The half ended with the score 12-6 and Trinity 
very deep in U.T.S. territory. 

U.T.S. began to open up the game in the second half 
and a blocked kick plus two passes from Hamilton to Cos- 
sar and Floyd, led to a U.T.S. touchdown early in the third 
quarter. Mathews converted. Later, with Trinity being 
caught asleep, another pass by Hamilton, this time to 
Labbet, resulted in another converted touchdown for U.T.S. 

In the final quarter, T.C.S. tried to retaliate by also 
passing but Hutchison of U.T.S. halted this effort by in- 
tercepting a Trinity pass and running to the T.C.S. twelve 
yard line. On a well executed fake Statue of Liberty play, 
Hamilton went over for U.T.S. making the final score 23-12. 


The tricky running of McDerment and the tackling of Board 
and Watts stood out for T.C.S. while the fine passing of 
Hamilton resulted in the U.T.S. victory. 

T.C.S. — Clark i, Seagram ii, LeVan, Dolph, Phillips, Long, Watts, 
Gordon, Currie, Board, Muntz, McDerment, West, Jackman, Timmins, 
Higgins 1, Ryley i, Colbourne i, McCuIlagh, Crawford, Arnold, Robert- 
son, MacKinnon, Molson, Tice. 


At Port Hope, October 10. Won 19-10. 

With only a week away from the start of the Little 
Big Four schedule, the School outplayed a bigger and 
heavier Malvern team in a 19-10 victory. With Trinity 
using their second string, Malvern was held from any scor- 
ing in the first quarter while big holes were made in the 
Malvern line enabling Eric Jackman and Doug Colbourne 
to make some good runs. However, it v/as not until the 
final minutes of the first half that T.C.S. received their 
first major scoring opportunity. After a long kick into 
Malvern territory by Norm Seagram, John Long recovered 
a Malvern fumble. On the following play, Muntz went over 
for a major which was converted by McDerment. 

Trailing 6-0, Malvern kicked off to start the second half 
and Trinity were held to no gain in the resulting plays. The 
Malvern line tightened up and began to play with more 
vigour. As a result, they blocked a Trinity kick and soon 
put the ball over for an unconverted touchdown. It did not 
take them long to add another which made the score 10-6 
in their favour, John Board then provided the spark that 
brought T.C.S. to life again by putting the ball over the 
Malvern line on a twenty-five yard reverse. This was con- 
verted by McDerment. 

In the fourth quarter. Board recovered a Malvern 
fumble but Trinity were not able to capitalize on it. Later, 
however, another fumble took place in the Malvern back- 
field, and Clark dribbled the ball into the end zone and fell 
upon it for the final Trinity touchdown, with McDerment 
once more converting. To end the scoring Phil Muntz 


kicked a single making it 19-10 for Trinity. Strong line 
play and quick thinking by T.C.S. accounted for the hard 
fought victory. 

T.C.S. — Ryley i, West, Higgins, Molson, Tice, Arnold, MacKinnon, 
Gordon, Currie, Colbourne i, Jackman, Robertson, Seagram ii, Clark, 
Muntz, McDerment, Crawford, McCullagh, Watts, Long, Phillips, 
LeVan, Dolph. 


At Ridley, October 6. Lost 22-13. 

Middleside, for the first time in the School's history, 
travelled to St. Catherines to play against Ridley. Trinity 
opened strongly and often were within easy scoring distance 
of the Ridley goal-line, only to be stopped by strong and 
determined defensive play. A major score was made when 
Ridley fumbled behind their own goal-line and Brine re- 
covered the ball. Young made the convert. Ridley then 
came back when Walker scored. However, the convert 
failed and the score remained 6-5 in favour of T.C.S. at 
the end of the first quarter. 

Weakening in the second quarter, Trinity allowed 
Ridley to cross the goal-line twice. The first was on a 
pass to Broad but it remained unconverted; the second was 
put over on a line buck by Dajmaan and was converted by 
a pass from Ferauld to Johnson. 

In the second half, Gruetzner finished Ridley's scoring 
with another converted touchdown. Trinity then began 
to fight back and a quarterback sneak plus a convert and 
a single by Young ended the scoring with the victory going 
to the hosts. Throughout the game the tackling of Strathy 
and Heenan was outstanding for T.C.S., while Ferauld's 
passes and Broad's tackling stood out for Ridley. 


SCHOOL vs. U.T.S. 
At Port Hope, October 10. Won 16-11. 

In their second game of the season, the T.C.S. seconds 
defeated U.T.S. 16-11 in a hard-fought game. There was 
very Httle scoring in the first half with T.C.S. counting a 
rouge by Brown and a safety touch on a tackle by dePen- 
cier and Leslie to lead 3-0. The third quarter opened with 
some fine running and passing on both sides, but neither 
team was able to put itself into scoring position. U.T.S. 
then marched into Trinity territory and on a long pass went 
over for a major, which remained unconverted. Minutes 
later U.T.S. again scored on a pass play with this touch- 
down being converted to make the score 12-3. Then late in 
the game the T.C.S. team started to roll. Behind a hard- 
charging line, and in the space of four minutes T.C.S. had 
gained two converted touchdowns. The first was on a 
quarterback sneak by Luxton while Young went around the 
end for the other. Both were converted by Young. T.C.S. 
then added a rouge to their score to make it 16-11. U.T.S. 
fought back but were unable to score as the game ended. 
The Trinity backfield of Young, Brown, Luxton and Houston 
were outstanding in the game. 

At Port Hope, October 13. Won 40-0. 

In their fourth game of the season Middleside showed 
fine mid-season form by decisively beating a smaller and 
inexperienced Pickering team on the home field. A com- 
bination of fast and well-timed backfield running behind a 
hard-charging line plus an excellent spirit was responsible 
for the Trinity victory. The team was slow in starting 
due to the unorthodox Pickering backfield, but eventually 
Brown found the way to the Pickering hne scoring two 
self -con verted touchdowns, making the score 12-0 at half- 

T.C.S. then began to roll at the beginning of the second 
half and led by Brown, again hit the score sheet. On end 


runs and centre plays Brown and Houston added two majors 
which were both converted by Brown. Luxton then scored 
on a quarterback sneak, and Young followed with a pass 
interception to make the score 33-0 for T.C.S. Then Brown 
finished off the scoring with a single and a converted touch- 
down making the final score 40-0. 

For T.C.S. Brown was outstanding with twenty-five 
points, and the T.C.S. team on the whole played an excellent 

The Middleside line-up for these games was: — Brine, 
Brown, Bonnycastle, Colbourne ii, Coriat, Day i, Donald, 
Heenan, Hendrie, Houston, Hylton (vice-capt.), Leslie, 
Luxton i, Luxton ii, de Pencier, Johnson, McGlennon, 
Parker, Seagrami i, Seagram iii, Strathy (capt.), Suther- 
land, Young. 


At the start of the season, the Littleside hopefuls were 
divided into two squads, the Rock Crushers and the Hard- 
rocks. In their first game, the former edged the latter by 
a score of 5-2. The second game was much better played, 
and the decision was reversed, the Hardrocks finally 
winning 9-8. One of the losers' most promising players, 
Bob George, was unfortunately put out for the season with 
a broken collar-bone. In the deciding game, the Rock 
Crushers had the edge all the way, finally winning with a 
score of 10 to 0. 

In a pre-season exhibition game with Port Hope High 
School, neither team showed very good football. Both were 
rather inexperienced, and Port Hope finally won 11-6, with 
Binnie scoring the lone Trinity touchdown in the dying 
minutes of the game. Mills made the convert. 

The regular season got off to a bad start at Ridley 
where the team lost by a score of 17-0. T.C.S. was obviously 
very nervous, and Ridley scored two converted touchdowns 
within the first four minutes. After that. Trinity held their 


own, very nearly scoring when Cumberland intercepted a 
pass, but the final whistle halted the following play. T.C.S. 
were beaten by a better team, but they showed that they did 
have the spirit and the drive which would enable them to 
develop into a fine team. 

This was shown in their next game when they defeated 
Appleby 7-6. Trinity was first to break into the scoring 
with a touchdown pass thrown by Mills to Osier i. Lafleur i 
made the convert. However, Appleby retaliated with a 
march from their own thirty yard line which ended with a 
touchdown on a pass from Thompson to Williamson. Trinity 
then broke up Thompson's attempted convert. There was 
no more scoring until the last quarter when Cumberland 
kicked a point for T.C.S. Appleby fought back and com- 
pleted the scoring when Thompson kicked a single. The 
play was very even throughout the game with most of the 
play taking place in centre field. 

T.C.S. — Cumberland (co-capt.), Burns ii fco-capt.), Trowsdale, 
Lafleur i, Lafleur ii, Osier i, Merry, Cran, Mills, Thornton, Dalgleish ii, 
Giffen, Budge, Hargraft, Ferrie, Scott i, Goodman, Anstis, Cart-

We welcome the New Boys to the Junior School and 
hope that their stay in the School will be a happy one. Our 
best wishes also to the Junior School boys who are start- 
ing out in the Senior School this year. 

Mrs. Crowe has left us this year to go and keep house 
for her son Kit in London, Ontario. She was with us for 
ten years and we all miss her gracious presence and her in- 
terest in everything connected with the Junior School. Our 
sincere thanks for all her unselfish and untiring efforts as 
dietitian and housekeeper, and our very best wishes for 
the future. 

Our sincere congratulations to Mr. Morris on his mar- 
riage. We welcome Mrs. Morris to the Jimior School and 
wish them both every happiness. 


Autumn's splendour on its way, 
Glowing more each turning day. 
All the leaves are turning red. 
Gold and brown before they shed. 

Headed south are ducks and terns, 
Geese and swans fly o'er the ferns. 
Through the mists these birds appear, 
Following nature's plans sincere. 

— p. N. Clarke, Form IIB. 


He came from the gathering dusk, 
And paused only for a moment. 

The moon came over the hill. 



And left him, a silhouette, 

Against the shimmering light.

The desert is a vast area of forbidding sand dunes, 
merciless and cruel to any traveller entering it. It is dotted 
with odd oases which bring great relief to adventurers who 
happen to stumble upon one. Many times people have been 
snatched out of the clutches of death because of these 
paradises in the middle of nowhere. Yet more have died 
because they couldn't find this water. 

But what is this! 

In the distance a small blot moves, then stops. Could 
it be a man or just a mirage? Yes? As it moves closer the 
figure of a man is discernible. Not a mirage, but a man 
stumbling along, lost in this barren and bleak hell, with just 
instinct keeping him going. He falls now; but with a super- 
human effort pushes himself up to fend off the menacing 
buzzards hovering above. The buzzards circle lower and 
lower, while the man struggles helplessly to overcome the 
weakness which overpowers him. As they come lower, he 
makes a feeble attempt to hold them off ; it is of no use, for 
he may hold them off for a little while longer, but he will 
eventually die. 

And the buzzards can wait. Yes! They can wait. 

— R. Ruddy, Form III. 


There are three types of salesmen : the quick, spry type 
who either puts his foot in the door or talks so much you 
can't resist buying something; or the kind that walks right 
in as soon as you open the door and plugs in a vacuum 
cleaner and insists that you at least let him demonstrate 
it; or last of all, the type that never gives up, and nearly 


always makes a sale because if he can't get in the back door, 
he'll get in through a window. Those are the three main 
types of salesmen who nearly always make the sales. 

Salesmen are just the people housewives don't want to 
see when they are doing their housecleaning, but housewives 
are their main victims. The thing about salesmen is that 
they are dressed the same as any other man, so if you see 
a man coming up the walk towards the door, you have got 
to answer it because you don't know whether he is a sales- 
man or someone important. Some housev/ives, if they see 
a man coming up the walk with a small suitcase, imme- 
diately think he is a salesman and don't answer the door; 
but salesmen have got wise to this and they have developed 
and perfected an ordinary-looking coat, which when opened 
up reveals several small hidden pockets filled with useful 
articles for the house. So a salesman doesn't need a bag, 
and he also fools many housewives this way. Housewives, 
or anybody who lives in a house, beware of salesmen; they 
are tricky. 

— D. D. Ross. 


Captain of Rugby A. M. Campbell 

Vice-Captain P. F. M. Saegert 

With plenty of material to choose from, the rugby 
squad shows signs of shaping up very well this year. 

As we go to press, we have won our two games against 
Lakefield and also a close contest with Ridley. This is a 
very good beginning to the season but two hard games still 
lie ahead.

He is number 243 on the School list which now con-

Mr. Freer is living at Greyscher House, Lakeshore

mentioned many of his old school mates by namle. The 
School sends him its most sincere good wishes; we believe 
he is our Senior Old Boy.

At the beginning of the century— in 1903— the nucleus of what 
is now the giant plant of the Port Hope Sanitary Manufacturing 
Co. was established. Through succeeding years it steadily expanded 
to meet the increasing demands of Canadians for high quality 
plumbing fixtures. 

In 1930, the plant became an important part of the Crane organ- 
ization which now has six great factories across Canada, consti- 
tuting this country's most complete source of supply for plumb- 
ing, heating and piping equipment. 

Today, from the Port Hope plant, bathtubs, lavatories, kitchen 
sinks, laundry tubs and drinking fountains are shipped to every 
part of Canada. Easy to clean and maintain, moderate in price, 
these fixtures have a beauty and utility which endure, for they 
are made of cast iron and fused on vitreous enamel. They are 
helping Canadians to better health and better living.

A middle-aged gentleman arose from his place at th& 
long dinner table. Obviously extremely nervous, he began 
to speak in a hasty, uncertain manner. For the next fifteen 
minutes, his audience was subjected to somewhat of an 
ordeal. The speaker wa.s advocating the use of a more 
efficient method of the operation of a business with which 
all the men were concerned, and yet when the speaker sat 
down, it was difficult to say if there was one person at the 
table who could repeat any of the speaker's remarks. They 
could, however, tell anyone approximately the number of 
times he had floundered for the proper word, or paused for 
a few agonizingly empty seconds, or mispronounced a word 
as a result of his shaking nerves. 


Public speaking is the art of talking distinctly and in- 
telligently to a group of people; debating is the art of per- 
suading this group of people to accept an idea or resolution 
by the use of clear, simple, well-defined arguments. No one 
who is of any importance in the business world should have 
neglected these two arts, and yet this speaker, who is merely 
a s3^m!bol of a type of person, had neglected both of them. 
The importance of being an accomplished speaker is shown 
even more clearly by the tremendous enrolment in Dale 
Carnegie's courses in public speaking, which are held in 
many of our cities. The thousands that applied realized that 
here was a wonderful opportunity that should not be turned 

At our School, this same opportunity is provided by the 
two active Debating Societies. Whether you are in these 
clubs or not, be sure to attend the debates, and if possible, 
speak from the floor of the house. No matter how short 
your speech may be, you will gradually feel more and more 
confidence in yourself as you continue to make these speeches 
during the year. Besides that, you have the advantage of 
beginning your debating among a group of boys who are 
no better orators than yourself, and not in front of a 
gathering of critical businessmen. 

If you are capable of making a good speech whenever 
called upon by the time you graduate from the School, you 
will have accomplished something for which you will be 
thankful the rest of your life. Debating is one of the great- 
est advantages the School provides for its students; let's 
see more boys making use of this opportunity! 


Through her Secretary, Her Royal Highness, the 
Princess Elizabeth sent the following radio message to the 
School from the "Empress of Scotland": "The Princess has 
asked me to thank you, the Masters and Boys of Trinity 
College School for your message (of farewell). She sends 
you her best wishes for now and the future." 


On the same day this telegram was received, November 
14th, a very gracious letter came from Her Royal Highness, 
the Princess Alice. Writing from Kensington Palace, Lon- 
don, the Princess Alice says that she and her husband wish 
they could have been at the School on October 21st for the 
consecration of the Memorial Chapel, and she expresses her 
pleasure at the knowledge that the whole School went to 
Trenton to see the Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of 

The Headmaster read these messages to the School in 
Hall and we all felt exceptionally honoured to be remem- 
bered by two Princesses. 




Using as his text for Remembrance Day on November 
11 a passage from I Kings. Canon Lawrence discussed the 
character of the condemned soldier. He said that the inci- 
dent of a man who was so busy with trifles that he failed 
in the big job, may be visualized without difficulty. For his 
criminal neglect of duty he was court-martialed. Undoubt- 
edly the verdict was guilty. If, the Canon suggested, one 
acted as the prisoner's advocate, what defence could one 
use? Canon Lawrence said that possible ideas would be: 
that he volunteered, was physically and mentally capable, 
and that his sense of honour made him report his own crime. 
But still, the plea would be guilty. 

The Canon continued by saying that the man, although 
carefree, friendly, and a "good fellow", lacked stability and 
integrity and his career culminated in disgrace. He lacked, 
above all, fidelity. 

In the wars of the past, he said, soldiers had to be fit 
and skilled. Today the responsibility of the individual has 


increased. A nation cannot survive unless trustworthy men 
are in Government. In both war and peace there is no sub- 
stitute for integrity and fidelity. 

In closing, Canon Lawrence said that Remembrance 
Day reminds us of two world crises when the youth stood 
the test; though many did not return, their fidelity was their 
greatest attribute. There is no higher ideal than fidelity. 
A Man died who was a victim of misunderstandings, was 
deserted by friends and followers, and was persecuted and 
crucified by His enemies. He was Jesus, the Christ, whose 
greatest quality was fidelity. 


On November 18, Dr. Wilson, who is editor of "Design 
for Living" in the Montreal Star, delivered a sermon in 
Chapel based on a text from first Corinthians, chapter nine. 
The theme of the text was the training of man in his spiritual 
life. Mr. Wilson advanced three ways in which this should 
be done: the training of muscle, for only with a clean body 
can we be clean spiritually; the training of the mind; and 
finally, the training of the man. Mr. Wilson stressed the 
importance of not having a materialistic viewpoint and 
putting God second to oneself. He said that the world lacks 
a spiritualistic outlook and only if we keep in training, keep 
close to God and let our spirits grow, can we be prepared 
for the coming of his kingdom. It was a privilege to have 
Dr. Wilson at the School. 


The chaplain spoke to us on Sunday, November 25, 
about Jesus' interest in fragments and broken things. When 
our Lord broke bread before the multitude and fed them, 
He asked His disciples to gather up the fragments which 
remained, so that nothing might be lost. The four gospel 
writers tell us about it in different ways. St. John says that 


Jesus ordered them to gather up the crumbs yet he does 
not say that He broke the bread with His own hands. The 
other writers tell us Jesus broke the bread with His own 
hands but do not say that Jesus ordered His disciples to 
gather up the crumbs which remained. However, it is cer- 
tain that Jesus had a pecuhar respect for bread during His 
life, possibly because food was scarce and thrift essential. 
Men later identified Him by the way He broke bread. 

Jesus, being human, possessed aptitudes. He took a 
sincere interest in the broken household goods which His 
countrymen brought to His father's carpentry shop to be 
repaired. People were poor and it was extremely difficult 
to replace damaged possessions. Men brought all casualties 
to Joseph and in his shop they found pleasure in conversing 
with Jesus for He understood what was in their hearts. 
His interest in helping them became so intent that they 
called him, "The Good Physician". 

Jesus took over the shop when Joseph died and began 
His public career of mending people Who were broken in 
many ways. Unfortunately, His life was also to be broken. 
He broke bread on the last night with His disciples telling 
them that He was to be betrayed and explained that it was 
for them. This night He talked about "broken bread" in- 
stead of "living bread" and thus revealed that He was to 
be broken for us that we might go our many ways sound 
in mind and in body. 


The Rev. Mr. Boulden of St. Mark's Church, Port Hope, 
spoke to the School in Chapel on Dec. 2. For his text he 
used a passage from the Gospel according to St. Matthew, 
"But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be 

Mr. Boulden said that the Christian church reminds us 
^t Advent that we are starting out on an adventure. Our 
religion demands that we work towards a goal. Those who 




follow religion only for the benefits they may receive, are 
failing in their duty to God. The early church, led by the 
Apostles, felt this challenge of adventure and self-sacrifice, 
reahzed that the hard work was worth while, and worked 
with increasing diligence. These same Apostles received 
their reward in heaven. 

Advent and Lent, the penitential seasons, are training 
periods of spiritual life, Mr. Boulden said. A man may train 
himself to physical perfection, but his life is imperfect if 
depth of spiritual character is lacking. We are all anxious 
to reach a goal of peace. But peace is not rest from all 
striving. In closing. Mi'. Boulden said that only those who 
enter the kingdom of God gain true peace. 


On the Second Sunday in Advent, December 9th, the 
Headmaster spoke in Chapel. He reminded us that just three 
years ago on December 10th the Universal Declaration of 
Human Rights was adopted by the General Assembly of the 
United Nations and the Assembly called upon all member 
nations to cause it "to be disseminated, displayed, read and 
expounded principally in schools and other educational in- 
stitutions." The Headmaster then read a number of the 
Articles, particularly those dealing with the dignity and 
worth of individuals, their rights and opportunities, and the 
brotherhood of man. 

This is a noble ideal, he said, and one worthy of our 
utmost effort. Canada is a democracy and many of these 
rights are commonplace, but others are not yet achieved and 
still others are in danger. 

It is generally agreed that democracy is the highest 
form of political organization yet devised, but there are 
grave dangers today. Only a week ago. the Archbishops and 
Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States 
issued a statement in which they compared conditions in the 
United States today, to those of Imperial Rome fifteen hun- 


dred years ago. At that time, barbarism was outside the 
borders of Rome and refined materialism and moral decay 
had penetrated within the borders. We know what hap- 
pened to Imperial Rome. I do not believe Canada should 
consider herself much better than our neighbour to the 
South; even Christmas is commercialized to a large extent 
and Christ is often left out as He is so usually left out in 
our day-to-day life. 

Many have their hearts set on one thing, to acquire 
much wealth, live lavishly and be constantly amused; there 
is not enough attention to human rights except as they 
concern the protection of one's own property. 

Once the rot sets in, democracy will destroy itself 
quickly, and barbarism will invade us; we shall then know 
tyranny as the people behind the Iron Curtain know it. 

The grave weaknesses of our democratic world are first, 
that men have put aside the moral and religious principles 
on which democracy was originally founded and, two, the 
mind of democratic man has not yet acquired wisdom and 
understanding, has not yet become truly mature. 

Man's mind is his most valuable physical asset, but 
cleverness of mind is not sufficient as we are ail beginning 
to realize. Man's mental power must be governed by Chris- 
tian principles and then good judgment will result. I do not 
believe democracy can survive unless the majority of the 
citizens of a democratic country have developed wisdom and 
good judgment and understanding, because they are, in the 
last analysis, the government of the country. That means, 
among other things, that the truly democratic man must 
realise that authority and law will go hand in hand with 
freedom, else freedom will become licence; that discipline, 
preferably self-discipline, must go hand in hand with liberty. 

Democracy is a nice balance between these two seem- 
ingly contradictory concepts. 

And above all, the free man must realise his responsi- 
bilities to his community and to his fellow men. Democracy 
is based on giving more than getting; privilege is protected. 


the privilege of acquiring wealth, of owning properi:y, of 
holding power, but that very privilege has never survived, 
and will not survive, unless there is an equal sense of obliga- 
tion to one's fellow men who are not so fortunate, 

I hope the General Assembly of the United Nations will 
next draw up the Declaration of Human Responsibilities 
to one's fellow men; that seems to me to be more needed 
in our North American world than the Declaration of Human 
Rights. Most people appear to know a great deal about their 
rights, but not so many realize their responsibilities; there 
can be no rights without responsibilities in a democratic 

We must develop more courage, especially moral and 
mental courage based on our conscience and the spirit of 
God which is in each one of us; courage to proclaim the 
Christian faith which, with the Greek idea of culture, the 
Roman idea of law, and the English idea of parliamentary 
government, forms the very foundation of democracy. 
Search the Scriptures, as we have been told in the Lesson 
this morning; they are the best handbook of pure demo- 
cracy, and the Sermon on the Mount sums up the most 
important details. But men are needed to save our way of 
life from becoming rotten at the core. Will you get into 
training for the struggle? 

"God give us men, courageous, strong, with vision clear 
and mind equipped. His will to learn. His work to do." 


The first carol ser\'ice in the new chapel took place on 
Sunday, December 16. The gallery was filled long before 
the service began and many visitors sat in the body of the 
chapel. The Processional Hymn was the traditional "Adeste 
Fideles" in Latin. Following this, the choir sang "Break 
Forth, O Beauteous Heavenly Light" and "Gabriel's Mes- 
sage," a carol that has just this year been introduced into 
the Carol Service. The first Bible reading by tenBroek of 


the J.S. was followed by the lively carol, "Past Three 
o'clock," with solos by Bonnycastle and Wilding in the 
Senior School, and Saegert and Cape ii from the J.S. After 
the next reading, "The Coming of Christ Foretold," by 
Heywood, the hymn, "O Little Town of Bethlehem," was 
sung. The Junior Choir then sang "A Star Was His Candle", 
and after a reading by Cartwright taken from Isaiah, the 
full choir sang "The Polish Carol" and "'Twas in the Moon 
of Wintertime," the old Huron Indian carol. After the 
fourth reading by Lafleur ii telling of Daniel's vision of the 
reign of Christ, the congregation sang the hymn, "Unto Us 
a Boy is Born", and the choir continued with "Good King 
Wenceslas", with Tony Hendrie singing the part of the 
king, and John Blaikie taking the part of the page. The 
fifth reading by Anderson told the story of the Annuncia- 
tion, and it was followed by another new carol, sung by the 
Senior School choir, "What Child is This?" The carol, 
"Masters in This Hall", came after the story of the Na- 
tivity read by Watts, and solos were sung by Gordon and 
Wevill in the Senior School, and Seagram, Spence, Rogers, 
and Blaikie from the J.S. The hymn, "The First Nowell", 
preceded the final reading by the Headmaster, giving St. 
John's version of the Divine Nature of Christ, and then the 
choir sang their last carol, "Ding Dong, Merrily On High". 
The offertory hymn, "While Shepherds Watched", prayers, 
the blessing, and the recessional hymn, "Hark The Herald 
Angels Sing", concluded the service. 

Mr. Cohu is to be highly complimented on the success 
of the service, and special praise should go to the choir for 
their fine rendering of the carols. 






Mr. Wesley Mason of Montreal has given a set of 
beautiful curtains for the stage. They are by far the best 
-curtains the School has ever had and were used for the 
first time at the end of term entertainments. There were 
many expressions of enthusiasm for them. 


Mr. Winnett Boyd ('27-'30) has founded a Bursary in 
memory of his brother, Father St. George M. Boyd ('27-'31), 
S.S.J.E., who died in March, 1951, after a lingering illness. 

The award will be of the amount of one hundred dollars 
and it will be given to a boy in the Sixth Form, planning to 
enter a University, whose school work has been satisfactory 
and who has developed character, personality and leadership 
qualities of distinction. As a rule, the award should be made 
to a boy who is not already in receipt of a bursary or 
scholarship and whose parents would appreciate such 

The first award for the year 1951-1952 has been made 
by vote of the staff to H. D. B. Clark and the announcement 
was received with much enthusiasm by the School. 



Ronald Watts ('43-'48) has been named one of the two 
Ontario Rhodes Scholars for 1952. In his years at T.C.S. 
Ron regularly maintained an average of 80-90 '~r in his school 
work and he took a miost active and leading interest in many 
other aspects of our life. He was Editor-in-Chief of the 
"Record", a Crucifer, President of the Dramatic Society and 
Political Science Club, and Vice-President of the Debating 
Society. He was a Prefect and won the Jim McMullen 
Trophy. On leaving T.C.S. , Ron was awarded the F. A. 
Bethune Scholarship to Trinity College, where he is now a 
fourth year student in Philosophy, English or History option. 
In his course at Trinity, Ron has won the George McCullagh, 
Thomas Henderson Wood, and Chancellor Worrell Scholar- 
ships, and the Douglas Bond Symons prize. He is also 
president of Alpha Delta Phi. For the last two summers he 
has taught English, history and other subjects at Frontier 
College, while working at Des Joachims with the Ontario 
Hydro-Electric Commission and with the C.N.R. in Northern 
British Columbia. We give our heartiest congratulations to 
Ron on winning this coveted award. 


It was a pleasure to hear that another T.C.S. Old Boy 
had won a Rhodes this year; C. M. Taylor has been awarded 
one of the two Scholarships for Quebec and will be going 
to Oxford next autumn. Charles Taylor was at the School 
from 1946 until 1949. Coming from Selwyn House, he won 
the Dyce Saunders Memorial Entrance Scholarship and 
during his years here he showed clearly that school work 
had no terrors for him. He was moved up from the Fourth 
to the Fifth form after the first term and he promptly found 
a place at the top of that form. 

In the Upper School examinations of 1948 he managed 
to collect ten first class honours and one second ; he returned 
for a second year in the Sixth Form to broaden and deepen 
his studies. He edited the "Record" and contributed some 


excellent verse to its columns. In athletics, he played foot- 
ball, hockey, cricket and tennis and he was a member of the 
track team; he came second in the Oxford Cup Race. He 
was a Prefect, President of the Debating Club and of the 
Political Science Club, and as Head Boy he gave an excellent 
valedictory address on Speech Day. 

Taylor won the first Youth Forum Competition for 
Canada in 1949 and was flown to England for discussions 
with representatives of thirteen other countries. He spoke 
in the Albert Hall as well as at many other gatherings. 

The School congratulates him and wishes him well at 

As two T.C.S. boys have been elected Rhodes Scholars 
for 1952, we felt it would be of interest to print the names 
of other T.C.S. boys who have won this coveted award. 

The first Rhodes Scholarships were given in Canada in 
1904, one for each Province. In the year 1926, the custom 
of giving two scholarships to Ontario and two to Quebec 
was begun. The scholarships are now of the value of five 
hundred pounds a year and are tenable at Oxford for two 
years with the possibility of renewal for a third year. 

The first Rhodes Scholarships to be awarded to T.C.S. 
boys were won in the year 1929 by G. S. Cartwright (U. of 
T.) from Ontario and L. C. Bonnycastle (Man.) from Mani- 
toba. In 1934, C. C. Eberts (Bishop's) was elected the 
Rhodes Scholar for Quebec and in 1947 J. A. Patterson 
(McGill) was elected the Rhodes Scholar for Quebec. In 
1949 H. C. Butterfield (McGill) won the Rhodes Scholarship 
for Bermuda and in 1951 W. M. Cox (U. of T.) was awarded 
the Rhodes Scholarship for Bermuda. In 1952 R. L. Watts 
(U .of T.) was elected a Rhodes for Ontario and C. M. Taylor 
(McGill) was elected a Rhodes Scholar for Quebec. Cart- 
wright, Cox and Watts all attended Trinity College, Toronto. 

It will be seen, therefore, that eight T.C.S. boys have 
won Rhodes Scholarships; it is considered to be a note- 
worthy achievement for five boys from the same school to 
win Rhodes Scholarships in five years. 



The School, and especially the Football team, is 
extremely grateful to the many Old Boys who sent mes- 
sages of congratulations to the team on winning the cham- 
pionship. The Headmaster read them out in the Hall and 
everyone was glad to know that the Old Boys were so proud 
of the team; altogether, some 40 letters or telegrams were 


The annual football dinner was held on December 7 and 
this year it celebrated the second successive Little Big Four 
Championship. After an excellent repast prepared by Mrs. 
Wilkin and her staff, the Headmaster proposed a toast to 
the King. He then opened the evening with a few short 
remarks on the team, and said that this year there would 
be no long speeches, but instead, films of Intercollegiate 
rugby games of the past season would be shown. In the 
course of his remarks he introduced to the boys many mem- 
bers of past Championship teams who were present at the 
dinner. Then he called upon Mr. Hodgetts to propose a toast 
to the team. Before the toast was proposed, Mr. Hodgetts 
mentioned that the coaching and playing of football at T.C.S. 
is more pleasurable than at any other school he knows, 
partly because of the attitude of the Old Boys, the Head- 
master, and the Staff, who do not put pressure on the coach 
or the team to produce constant Championships. Thus the 
boys can play football as a game, not as a job. Bob McDer- 
ment and Hugh Watts replied to the toast and presented 
Mr. Hodgetts with an engraved mantel clock, from the boys 
on the team. Then a few members of former Championship 
teams were called upon to address the group. Mr. N. H. 
(Styx) Macaulay, Captain of the 1910 team, told the boys 
never to forget the far more important aspect of their school 
life, namely, their studies, for these would be the deciding 
factors in later life. Mr. Charles Bums, a Governor of the 
School, said how much he had enjoyed the games and he

offered to give the team new sweaters next year. Mr, Syd 
Saunders and Mr. Buck Pearce added their congratulations 
to the team, and Mr. N. O. Seagram, President of the O.B.A., 
recalled certain incidents in the three games that impressed 
him the most, adding he was interested to see that Princeton 
had copied our single-wing system! He then gave out the 
gold footballs to the members of the team who had received 
their colours, and also silver cuff-links to the members of 
last year's Championship cricket and swimming teams. 

The presentations continued with Mr. Macaulay giving 
all the players on the team wall-mats, with an imitation 
football in the centre for autographs. Mr. Jim Ker-r was 
called upon to give out his own trophy for the most valuable 
player on the team, which this year was shared between 
Phil Muntz and Hugh Watts, and Mr. Burns gave out the 
individual awards for this cup. Cumberland was this year 
awarded the Dunbar Russel Memorial Football for the most 
promising player on Littleside, and this football was pre- 
sented to him by Mr. Saunders. The Headmaster then ad- 
journed the dinner to the assembly hall where the movies 
were shown. Mr. Hugh Savage, President of the McGill 
Touchdown Club, very kindly brought some of the films. 
The evening was acclaimed by everyone present to be a 
gi^eat success and fitting close to the rugby season, and our 
sincere thanks go to all those who helped in its preparation, 
and especially to the Old Boys' Association, who were so 
generous in providing the funds for the presentations to the 

Among the Old Boys and fathers present were: N. O. 
Seagram, J. W. Seagram, P. C. Osier, T. L. Taylor, W. 
Duggan, A. H. Wilkinson, Milton Burt, John Kline, Hadley 
Armstrong, Jim Kerr, N. H. Macaulay, W. M. Pearce, Charles 
Bums, W. W. Stratton, S. B. Saunders, Dr. McDerment, 
Rev. H. G. Watts, Mr. C. H. Long, Mr. E. P. Muntz, Mr.

Colbourne, Mr. Brefney Higgins, Mr. J. A. West, Bill Long, 
Hugh Savage, Joe de Pencier, Pat Osier, Ed Huycke, Broddy 



On Wednesday evening, December 19, the annual 
Christmas dinner was held. The choir, in the gallery, sang 
selections from various carols and they sounded extremely 
well in the Hall. Then the Yule log and boar's head were 
brought in, accompanied by servants, chefs and the jester, 
John Seagram. After the sumptuous meal, Mrs. Orchard 
presented the Kicking and Catching Cup to the co-winners, 
Bob McDerment and Phil Muntz. Then the Headmaster 
asked the Rev. H. G. Watts and Mr. E. P. Muntz to present 
the championship football bracelets, given by the Old Boys, 
to the members of the first team. 

Three cheers were given for Mrs. Wilkin and her staff 
who provided the delicious dinner, and then the School and 
visitors made their way to the Gym for the entertainment.

This year's entertainment began with a community 
sing-song led by Wilding, Hendrie, Gordon and Ryley. 
Accompanied by Mr. Prower they sang "On Top of Old 
Smoky", "My Truly Fair" and other popular songs. They 
later sang cowboy songs and selections from "South Pa- 

Our new curtains, given by Mr. Mason, were parted for 
the first time presenting Hylton's Quiz Show. Hulse, Cran 
and Spencer, the contestants, made the program extremely 
humorous by their answers. Hulse, after failing to name 
the Prime Minister of Canada, declared that he was only a 
university student while Spencer, after obtaining the square 
root of a large and difficult number, remarked that he sat 
at Kr. Scott's table. Heenan held up "applause" signs for 
each contestant. 

Gordon Penny presented his radio program after an 
interlude of Mr. Prower's music. He and his accomplices 
Jackson, Hendrie, and Simonds produced sound effects for 
an alternatiing station program and the audience seemed 


well entertained by the humorous combinations they ob- 
tained. This was one of the best features of the evening. 

Simonds delivered a humorous cigarette advertisement 
which preceded Oman's and Spencer's version of a surgical 
operation. The grave doctors, attractive nurses and appro- 
priate sound effects created a realistic atmosphere and made 
the enactment a success. 

Oman and Heenan, acting as Premier Mossadegh and 
Herbert Morrison, respectively, presented a diplomatic con- 
ference. They were succeeded by the Anderson and Bonny- 
castle Soap Opera advertising "Glisso" soap, the only soap 
that makes your "gleams" come true. The opera and ad- 
vertisements were clever and well written. They deserved 
the hearty acknowledgment they were given. 

The successful evening closed with the quartet leading 
another sing-song. 


On November 8, Mr. H. A. Mowat spoke to the School 
in the assembly hall. Mr. Mowat is most active in the 
Toronto branch of the U.N. and has visited Palestine as a 
representative of the U.N. 

He said that Canada had been organized to win a war 
which had started thousands of miles from Canada. Inter- 
national forces are of key importance. Canada today be- 
lieves it is a good policy to interpret accurately world affairs, 
for Canada is the most powerful country outside the Big 
Five. Canada is being listened to, and the confidence shown 
towards Canada's representatives to the U.N. is of the 
highest degree. "Today," continued Mr. Mowat, "we must 
think constructively, for International Affairs are in a 
muddle, and the world is confused." Man's character, he 
stated, has operated destructively with such violence, that 
one wonders what can be done to save the world from 
disaster. Government alone cannot guarantee security; it is 
dependent on international co-operation and international 


law which would give personal security. The old principle 
was, "My decision for my country." This idea must be re- 
placed by a world organization, for competing nationahsm 
does not work. We must substitute co-operative nationalism. 
The West must have peace with freedom, for only in free- 
dom is there hope for mankind. Canada now is free in a 
political sense, but if she were a Russian satellite, Canada 
would be enslaved. Mr. Mowat continued by saying that the 
Western nations have exported their freedom and helped 
"de-satellite" the satellites after World War II. But we of 
the West have failed on moral levels when dealing with 
minorities. People in the East have known only tyranny, 
and they can be won by the West only if we raise their 
standard of living. 

In closing, he said that good ideas can work on a global 
scale through human rights and international law. If the 
U.N. succeeds, it can change the course of the world; if it 
fails, life may be a hell on earth. Mr. Mowat said there was 
no substitute for the U.N., and no substitute for the next 
generation and what they are responsible for — the preser- 
vation of peace and the quest of freedom. 

Several boys continued the discussion of world affairs 
with Mr. Mowat long after his address. 


On December 3, the School was privileged to see an 
excellent natural science film provided by the Moody Bible 
Institute. The film covered two phases of science, as seen 
through the microscope and the telescope. A most interesting 
part was a portion of the film devoted to the various delicate 
forms of snow-crystals. Everyone enjoyed the film im- 
mensely and we all hope that there will be a chance to see 
another such film in the future. 



Mr. Frank Crawshaw, a distinguished British actor of 
stage, screen and radio, gave impersonations of famous 
figures in plays and stories in the Hall on October 24. He 
also gave excerpts from some of Mr. Churchill's famous 
wartime speeches, with the Churchill voice and mannerisms. 
His program included scenes from "Hamlet" and "Julius 
Caesar," and also several short, humorous satires on English 
customs. The School was delighted with his performance, 
as it was when he was here two years ago.

Nowadays we continually hear T.C.S. boys loudly ex- 
tolling the virtues of the new Tuck Shop with its comfort- 
able chairs, its fireplace, its bay windows looking out over 
the campus, its gleaming kitchen and generally spotless 
interior. And yet many Old Boys recall with pleasant mem- 
ories another tuck shop — and I am sure you will agree that 
it too had advantages. The old tuck shop can still be seen 
at the bottom of the hill, south-east of the School on what 
is still known as the "Tuck Road" — it is an elderly house, 
of course, of red brick with white window frames and a front 
garden shaded by old pine trees. Few boys now give it more 
than a passing glance; but fifty years ago all the boys, and 
indeed many of the visitors, masters and parents, during 
the winter, tobogganed from the old School down the hill 
to the very door. Mrs. Philp owned the house and ran the 
tuck on her own, and was its very life, but after she died 
her daughters carried on for many years. One saw, on 
entering, a smallish room with tables set about here and 
there. These were covered with oilcloth on which the boys 
wrote their names. When a tablecloth was filled, it was 
bought by one of the boys as a souvenir. There is one in 
the case outside the dining hall now. 

As for the food, the David Harum sundae reigned su- 
preme — this was much larger than the present "cheap 


imitations" found in drug stores now and was infinitely 
better tasting, judging by all accounts. There were, of 
course, no soft drinks, but in their place were cocoa, coffee, 
and lemonade — one up for the present — but listen to this: 
for one dollar a boy could buy a whole chicken ready cooked 
either to eat there or (which was illegal) in the "School! 
These were often bought during break to be left on or under 
the owner's bed for later consumption. A risky business? 
One could also buy hot sausage rolls, tea and sandwiches 
with meat for 25c. There was fudge, homemade candy, fried 
eggs and bacon, among other things. There v/as one definite 
rule — no smoking — but it is not certain whether this rule 
was always strictly adhered to. 

There was originally only one main house, but later an 
addition was built and rumour has it that this was entirely 
paid for by money from T.C.S. boys, which indicates the 
popularity of the old tuck. Boys nowadays will stand up 
for the modern conveniences of the present tuck — its bottled 
drinks, cooler, milk shake mixers, and paper-wrapped choc- 
olate bars, but still the old tuck had its good points which 
can never be forgotten. 


When it was announced that, for family reasons, Miss 
Elsie Gregory was to leave Trinity College School, both staff 
and boys knew how greatly she would be missed. For over 
nine years, she has been the Headmaster's private secretary, 
and in her own quiet way, has made a great contribution to 
to the life of the School. 

Miss Gregory was born in Toronto and after completing 
her education there, she took a position in the Gestetner 
Company in that city. During the early years of the war, 
Miss Gregory was employed by the Government. It was 
during some pohtical meetings which were held at T.C.S. 
that she first visited the School and met Mr. Ketchum, who, 
a short time later, offered her the responsible post of private 


Taking up her duties in September, 1942, Miss Gregory 
continued to carry them out faithfully for the next nine 
years. In addition to secretarial work, she looked after the 
notices of school functions, the mimeographing of examina- 
tion papers, the filling out and mailing of report cards, and 
the more cheerful items, such as entertainment programmes, 
notices of holidays, movie leaves and other respites from 

Miss Gregory was deeply interested in everything con- 
nected with the Memorial Chapel, and we are happy to know 
that she was able to see it completed and consecrated before 
she felt it her duty to return to Toronto, owing to her 
mother's illness. 

After dinner on Friday, Nov. 9, the Headmaster paid 
tribute to her, and a silver tray, suitably engraved, was 
presented to her on behalf of the staff and boys. The ovation 
given her at the time indicated that, in spite of her quiet 
and retiring ways, the boys realized how much she had done 
for the School and for them. 

We understand that she now has a position that is near 
her home, and we wish her every success, and we hope that 
she will come back to visit us as often as she can, for she 
is greatly missed by all of us here. 


At the end of the first World War the School staff was 
augmented by a number of veterans. It was then that we 
were lucky enough to receive Ben Cole. Since then, he has 
been of the greatest assistance to us. Yearly he has trained 
the New Boys in rifle drill and basic manoeuvres, therefore 
a great deal of the honour bestowed on the cadet corps 
should fall on him. 

The halls and rooms of Bethune were kept in spotless 
order by him, and until last year, when he became ill, he 
never missed a day's work. 

Last term Ben was presented with a gold wiatch by the 
members of the School in recognition of his services. His 


friendly and cheerful disposition will surely be missed by 
as all now that he has returned to England with his wife. 
Our good wishes and thanks are extended to Ben and 
Mrs. Cole in their home in the Old Country.

On November 15, the Senior Debating Society opened 
its season. The resolution before the House was that "Britain 
Should Use Force to Maintain Her Rights in Iran." For the 
Government were Anderson, Seagram ii, and Crawford, and 
representing the Opposition were Watts, Clark i and Wild- 
ing. The Speaker was Hylton. The Government centred 
their argument around three m.ain points: the effectiveness 
of force, the ineffectiveness of diplomatic persuasiveness, 
and its international consequences. The opposition's argu- 
ments were based on both the theoretical and practical side. 

The Government stated that the outcome of the Iranian 
situation involved the Russian Pact with Iran, and the North 
Atlantic Treaty. The Opposition pointed out that Britain 
could still buy Iranian oil and that if the British entered 
Iran, the Iranians would probably blow up the refineries at 
Abadan. At the end, Mr. Humble commended the boys for 
good presentation and bearing on their first debate. For 
the Government R. Anderson and N. Seagram both spoke 
well, and for the Opposition, T. Wilding. Both the House 
and the judges supported the Opposition. 



The first inter-school debate of the season found the 
School debating team upholding the affirmative side of the 
resolution, "That Britain should use force to maintain her 
rights in Iran." The debate was held on Nov. 23, at Ridley 
College, with Ridley taking the negative side of the issue. 
The first speaker for the School was Anderson, who spoke 
on the eifectiveness of military force to win back Britain's 
oil interests. The opposition said that time for force was 
over, and that the use of force in Iran would undoubtedly 
plunge the world into a devastating third world war. Craw- 
ford and Seagram ii were the other two speakers for Trinity, 
and they in turn proved the ineffectiveness of diplomacy, 
and the suicide of procrastination and the blackmail of 
appeasement. Although the judges allowed that the govern- 
ment had the more difficult side of the debate, they awarded 
the decision to Ridley on the basis of their better material, 
and poise in speaking. Anderson was voted the best speaker 
of the evening, and for that honour he deserves much credit. 




A small paper-boy, making his rounds on a cold 
December evening, entered the mighty corridor of Bethune 
House. He was awed by the serenity and grandeur of the 
mighty doors which guarded the very dwellings of the heroes 
themselves. Could it be that these noble youths were now 
engaged in valorous conflict with the barbaric Brentites who 
dared to pass through their foe's domain for evening chapel, 
or were they in quest of greater fame? A bell rang before 
he could reason these things out and the heroes arrived as 
a rush of mighty wind. He could tell by the faces of the 
younger warriors that they had just won the Magee Cup 
of late for prowess in running, gymnastics and boxing. 
Surely the older warriors were equally renowned and re- 
garded their lives with absolute complacency? Alas, such 
was not their plight. 

He saw five of them climb dolefully through open 
windows armed with pipes and clothed in warm furs. Un- 
fortunately, their lord and housemaster had set aside the 
smoker as a den of antiquity, for it had witnessed ancient 
competitions and customs for a long time. These souls were 
found to smoke beyond the walls. 

Suddenly a dark, harried figure leaped from his room 
followed by turbulent black smoke. His mighty toaster had 
been waxing full strong and had decomposed a piece of 
bread far too soon. Oh deah! He undoubtedly forgot that 
smoke diffuses inversely as the square root of its density. 

But hark! Some one is in great spirits, for wild strains 
of noble music are issuing from his room. The noise is 
attracting others and their voices are blending in a mighty 
cry. The tempo is increasing and is climaxed by a bell which 


causes them to depart one by one to the chapel where their 
sins are confessed. 

Night falls and two mighty warriors begin to joust in 
the corridors whilst others slumber. Their lusty groans 
reverberate down the hall and arouse the lord who ends their 
contest by his quarter. One of the contestants, still un- 
conquered, blows upon his trumpet in acknowledgment. 
Four others awake and respond with their cry which causes 
the windows to vibrate loudly and some of them to break. 
Soon all is quiet once again and everyone slumbers under 
the influence of fresh air which flows in through open panes. 


The following was recently found by a certain Pro- 
fessor C. Scott among William Shakespeare's private papers. 
It was allegedly written when he was commencing his career 
as a not too successful new boy at T.C.S. It is with pleasure, 
not unmixed with pain, that we publish it for the first time. 

Sonnet 291/4 
When I with face best viewed in total dark. 
While playing sports bemoan my dearth of skill, 
I dream of coiffeurs bold — like Nobby Clark, 
Or football prowess like our noble Phil; 
Or else when shining shoes with polish (black), 
I envy Bobanjo's exalted states; 
But Sormy's snazzy signature I lack. 
While Hylton's sparkling repartee deflates 
My hope of fame at basketball like Doak. 
When masters find my homework is not done 
I look to D. Fish Crawford, and invoke 
His literary gifts where I have none. 
Then I, dark thoughts of suicide prevent 
With this — ah! happy thought! — I am in Brent.

When the Spanish Conquerors first beheld Acapulco in 
all its beauty from the lofty jungle-clad mountains on 
Mexico's west coast, they saw a wonderful natural harbour 
for their ships, a crescent-shaped bay which is now reputed 
to be one of the most beautiful on earth. 

Under Spanish rule, a port developed at such a rate 
that it soon became the most important commercial centre 
on the entire Pacific coast of both Americas — from the 
Russian colonies in Alaska to the straits of Magellan — for 
Acapulco was directly in the path of Oriental merchandise 
being brought on Spanish galleons from far-away China 
en route to Spain. After the Mexican Revolution the trade 
went with the "conquistadores", and Acapulco for a long 
period became a small, sleepy seaside village. The only 
means of communication with the outer world was a narrow 
cobblestone road built in the time when Mexico was New 


This situation continued until about fifteen years ago, 
when a paved highway was built to Acapulco from Mexico 
City through some of the most awe-inspiring and beautiful 
jungle and mountain scenery that anyone could wish to see- 
Only experienced and nerveless drivers can challenge its 
three hundred miles of sharp curves and extremely steep 
slopes. About the same time, an airport was built just out- 
side the town limits. With the car and the plane came 
another boom, for now Acapulco has become the mecca of 
thousands of tourists who flock to this sunshine paradise. 

The town's 20,000 people earn their living mainly by 
catering to this floating population which outnumbers them 
by two to one. Though metropolitan Mexico City has 150 
times the population of Acapulco, the latter boasts an equal 
number of hotels. These luxurious hotels are either built 
beside soft sandy beaches surrounded by coral reefs or in 
the mountains where granite cliffs look out over the blue 
translucent waters of the Pacific Ocean. On these rocky 
promontories, wonderfully coloured bougainvillia and ruby- 
red hibiscus bloom under perpetual tropical sunshine which 
is never marred by rain cloud, for in Acapulco it rains only 
at night. Yet, because of the cool ocean breezes, the tem- 
perature never becomes oppressive. The modern avenues 
are lined with broad tropical palms and tall sturdy cocoanut 

During the day, Acapulco provides every means of 
recreation. It offers beaches for every mood : some give quiet 
relaxation like the peaceful "Caleta", while others like "Pie 
de la Cuesta" with huge breakers, present a challenge to 
the strongest swimmer. It is also a paradise for hunters 
and fishermen. Anything from the sharks to the deadly 
manta or sting-ray can be caught, including some of the 
world's largest sail-fish. The virgin sierra is alive with 
animal life. Deer, puma and crocodiles roam through the 
luxuriant foliage of the primeval forest. 

Night falls quickly in this tropical town, but the short 
sunset glows like a jewel. The horizon is streaked with 


myriad colours as the sun drops into the flaming waters of 
the bay. 

Then the night-Ufe begins. Tropical Latin music floats 
to the ear from all sides from the glittering hotels, the night 
clubs open to the sky, and the tiny street cafes. 

Acapulco has a glamour that differs from that found 
anj'where else. Like its tropical nights, it has a quality all 
its own. 

It is without doubt the most enjoyable and colourful 
sea-resort in picturesque Mexico and is unrivalled the world 
over. It is a Utopia, a perfect dream, and yet — it does exist.

A lone ship plowed through the sea of humanity, 
veering now and again to avoid those mountainous waves 
of people which bore down upon it. The destination of this 
vessel was 964, Lambsby Lane, London: the cargo was a 
full load of beer. Yes, Ben Bugleman was quite drunk. 

As he listed from side to side, the words of "the missus" 
came back to him. 

"If you step in this 'ere 'ouse more larked up loike you 
'as been, O'il see that yer ruddy 'ead's bashed proper!" 

They were strong words, to be sure, but Ben, mooring 
himself to a handy lamp post, could only think of one thing. 
"H'i wants to go 'ome, h'i wants to go 'ome," he sang. 

Other ports of call were visited along the way. They 
included another pub, and a Salvation Army street meeting. 
At last his '"ome" was reached. It was a two-storey affair, 
backed by a small shed. Ben used the shed to climb in 
through his bedroom window. "Ooops H'i goes," he grunted, 
and making as little noise as possible, he sought his bed. 
Now, "as little noise as possible" should have awakened Mrs. 
Bugleman, her three children, the family dog, cat and white 
mice. Strangely enough it failed, though the splintering of 
a chair and the fall of a lamp echoed through the house. 
It was even more peculiar that Ben couldn't find his bed. He 


sat down on the floor rather abruptly to ponder over those 
two wonders, and finally decided to turn on the lights. They 
revealed his living-room. 

"Well now, 'ow does yer loike that," he exclaimed 
thoughtfully. "H'i were sure that H'i cloimed oop the shed. 
Moi mustoiche." 

So, for the first time in his life, Ben ambled downstairs 
to the upstairs bedroom. 

"Gor blimey, them stairs is getting positively cheeky," 
he thought. 

The bed was there, the dresser was there, and the closet 
was there. His wife was not. 

He climbed into bed. It was deliciously warm and soft- 
Ben could have sworn that the sheets were fur lined. After 
a moment, he decided they were, and drew his feet to his 
chin. A lump in the covers followed them up. 

The air was rent with a screech. Whatever had hidden 
itself under those covers now emerged, and stood, hair on end 
before Ben's face. The family cat was voicing its objections 
to being rudely awakened. They were good enough objec- 
tions for Ben, so he promptly flew out of bed and to the 
window, where all went black. 

Early next morning Mrs. Bugleman looked in at her 
still unconscious spouse. He was muttering something about 
"beasties, 'ome was choinged about, and spirits what 'it you 
when yer back was turned." A smile of profound satisfac- 
tion spread across her face. Noticing the cat, she stooped 
to pick it up, murmuring: 

"Aye puss, it's a wife of h'invention I am when the 
necessity comes up." 

Silently, she closed the bedroom door and trotted down- 
stairs. Plumping herself down on the sofa, already occupied 
by her three children, the family dog and a white mouse, 
she sighed deeply. Moving furniture is heavy work, "'E'li 
never touch another drop," she confided to the assembled 

And, surprisingly, Ben Bugleman never did.

White gulls fluttering with a weird high call, 
Swift swells sweeping strike a bleak cliff wall, 
Foaming breakers beating on the atoll, 
The Sea. 

Canvas straining, while taut ropes fray; 
Oak timbers creaking slice through the spray; 
Anxious faces, waiting for the day; 
The Sea. 

Bright blue water, flecked with crests of white; 
Hot sultry seas, with green shores in sight; 
Pale placid water glistening at night; 
The Sea.

There is a stream that idles through the autumn — rich 
fields not far away. A stream so tiny that at times it be- 
comes merely a succession of muddy pools in which the 
the minnows flit from side to side and watch the margins 
of the little oceans creep nearer and nearer. Once, at flood- 
tide, it dashed with miniature foam-wreaths to its mother 
river, drunk with the ever-plentiful wine of melted snow; 
now this stream is but a trickle wandering by slow and 
devious by-ways to a hidden mill-pond. At the lower end, 
the water, having rested, topples playfully over the well- 
worn dam and carries on into the open countryside again 
forgetful of its short-lived solitude. The mill itself, no more 
than a memory of its former white-washed glory, stands 
beside the sluice hiding its present shame in a comforting 
cloak of ivy. Its windows stare with sightless eyes at the 
reflection of the bleeding leaves in the motionless wlater. 
The trees, old before the mill was built, bend with ancient 
moss-covered branches over the surface and drop their red 


and yellow leaves like tears one by one onto their reflections. 
But above, the frowning clouds forecast winter storms and 
another broken tree trunk lying across the pool to be buried 
in state with water lilies above it as a pall. . . .

"For what avail the plough or sail. 
Or land or life if freedom fail". 

— R. W. Emerson. 

Fate plays many a cruel trick. I sometimes wonder if 
she does not do it on purpose. I have told myself over and 
over again to keep faith, but I have reached the end of my 

My name is Petroff Kenuska, and my home is in Prague. 
Czechoslovakia. My twin brother and I were brought up 
in the fear and horror of World War I and so I have no 
heart for violence. Between the wars, I became a wealthy 
individualist and a leader of society. Then World War 11 
came. Because of a certain amount of warning I was able 
to secure my wealth and to hold it during Hitler's regime. 
Then, after the Fascists, came the Communists. My wealth 
was lost — my way of life abandoned. My wife and only 
child were deported to Russia; two months later I was told 
they had died in a forced labour camp. 

Then, with no family ties, I set myself to the problem 
of escape. Twice my brother and I attempted to cross the 
border. Once we were forced to turn back; the second time 
I was caught. After eleven months in a prison camp I was 
free to try again. 

On my release, I returned to Prague to find that my 
brother, who had managed to escape capture, had become 
a confirmed communist. With him and the secret police 
watching me the problem became more difficult. However, 
unknown to my brother, I had a friend in Asch, a small town 
near the frontier, who was willing to join me in another 
attempt. I waited my chance. 


Then, in September, 1951, my brother told me he was 
to go to Asch on party business. I decided to Join him as I 
would arouse no suspicion travelling with my twin brother. 
We agreed to meet on the train — the Asch Express — as he 
would have no time to pick me up. 

The day of the trip arrived. I was excited when first 
I got up in the morning but soon my excitement turned to 
determination. I packed my few belongings and took a 
street-car to the station. Then the street-car broke down. 
Why that one I'll never know, but nevertheless, it happened. 
The train left without me. 

After some delay I was able to borrow a motorcycle 
and started for Asch by road. I managed to pass the train 
a short distance past Eger and at Asch I stopped at the 
station to wait for my brother. But my brother never got 
off the train at Asch; the train didn't stop until West Ger- 

Why it was my brother and not I will forever remain a 
m.ystery. Did we look so much alike that even fate mixed 
us up? I am now working in a concentration camp after 
being caught in my third attempt. Beside me works my 
brother, denounced by his own "camarades" on his voluntary 
return. I have lost all faith in life!

And yet do these electrons spin 
In noiseless, whirling, whirl-less space. 
In spaceless time, with timeless hum— 
A paradox with double face? 

Where is our world and who are we 
That catch a sound, but do not hear. 
That touch and handle, do not feel. 
That view, perceive, and do not see? 


What prospect to discover Truth! 

To search the well in Grecian land, 

To unearth wisdom, unscale eyes. 

To solve Thebes' Sphinx, and understand! 

And yet although we knock and knock. 
And learning, open door and door. 
And quickly rush from room to room — 
Truth sleeps ahead just one room more. 

And so must we Delusion wed, 
A marriage, formal, youthless; 
Devotion not to what may live. 
But to that which we know is dead. 

Here lies reality; 
Here lie events; 
Tangible, silently delusional. 

Ours is the light world; 

Ours is the sound world; 
Still, and comfortably three-dimensional. 
And yet do these electrons spin — ?

The other day as I was passing the playground of a 
school attended by small children between the ages of six 
and twelve, I saw a fight. The familiar ring had been formed 
around the two small combatants and the spectators were 
shouting words of encouragement. Inside the ring, com- 
pletely oblivious to those around them, one boy was being 
badly beaten and the other, though smaller, was pressing 
his advantage. The beaten boy seemed to have no heart for 
the fight, but could do nothing to protect himself. He hadn't 
been prepared and, if he had, the chances are that no fight 
would have occurred. 





On every such playground there are those who hve in 
-^ontinual fear of meeting one of a group of boys who are 
known as buUies at that school. One day, perhaps, one of 
the buUies will be beaten and his opponent will never have 
to defend himself again. All will know that he is prepared 
to fight whether big or small. Then he becomes part of a 
group who are neither bullied nor bulhes, but those who are 
ready to fight when they have to. And nobody wishes to 
nght him who is prepared. 

Nations behave in much the same manner, though the 
majority do not fight for the sake of fighting but to attam 
something. The United States is a powerful country and a 
number of years ago she decided she needed Cuba, an island 
owned by a weak country. Spain. It would have been, there- 
fore an easy matter to go to war with Spain and take Cuba. 
But'spain, not willing to fight, was ready to give up Cuba 
30 as to prevent war. But war came. Spain was much like 
the boy who, showing he was unprepared to fight, only 
brought the fight more quickly upon himself. 

Spain was small and therefore no match for the United 
States, but at the eve of World War II, Switzerland was 
small and no match for Germany. But Germany did not 
attempt to attack, for Switzerland was ready to fight, and 
no big or small bully wants to fight him who is prepared. 
During the nineteenth century England managed to 
keep herself and the world out of continual war. On several 
occasions she told other powers that if they interfered in 
wars they weren't already engaged in, she would defend 
the other side. She was playing the part of a boy on the 
playground who was not only prepared to defend himself 
but was prepared to defend others. As a result she kept the 
world in comparative peace. 

Once a class bully shoved roughly out of his way a 
smaller boy, whom he could easily have beaten. He had 
mistaken the boy for another whom he constantly bullied. 
Instead he found the boy to be one who was ready to fight. 
But knowing this, the bully quickly made certain a fight was 


avoided by hastily pacifying the smaller boy. By being 
prepared to fight the smaller boy kept himself out of fights. 
And so it is with school boys, men, people and nations; 
for if we desire peace, we must be prepared for war.

Jeffrey watched the little dancing pinnacled flames 
bobbmg in the fireplace. He huddled closer, and contem- 
plated the little red and yellow pin-points prancing over 
the log and seething underneath; he revelled in the scene 
of intricate diminutive beauty. 

Suddenly there was a little pop, and a spark leaped onto 
the carpet; it glowed, and then died out. Then there was 
another pop, and another spark followed the first one. 

But this time it takes on new life, and bursts into a 
little flame. It feeds on the carpet, becoming ever and ever 
more vigorous. It spreads rapidly, and reaches a curtain 
-It races up the side ... the room is getting thick with 
smoke ... the paint on the wall swells and blackens There 
IS an mcreasing glow in the corner, as of molten, red-hot 
ni£tal spilling from an endless container— it advances — 
flames are now on all sides of Jeffrey; they crackle with 
malevolence. The heat is unbearable; Jeffrey sees his skin 
dry and shrivel under his very eyes - streams of sweat 
evaporate off him as he sits glued to the blackened mass 
that was a chair. He is no longer human-his body disin- 
tegrates in ashes-he cannot scream. He gazes with horror 
at the racing, killing, laughing flames, whipping their hatred 
. . . reducing life to black dust . . . 

Jeffrey started ... a log had collapsed in the fireplace. 
He wriggled uneasily in his chair as he wiped his hot fore- 
head but he got up to poke the fire back to life. He stared 
at a httle bare, black spot in the Persian carpet for a minute- 
then he went into the kitchen, took out a glass, filled it with 
water, and touched it to his lips. He savoured its tender 
coolness . . . that infinite coolness

A new era of machines and air-mindedness has dawned 
and the old must give place to the new. Modern aspects of 
ancient institutions must be considered. Among these in- 
stitutions is the castle. 

Throughout the centuries civilized man has constructed 
castles or fortresses to protect himself from his enemies. 
These fortresses have varied from the baronial castles of 
the Middle Ages with their battlements and twenty-foot- 
thick walls, to the Maginot Line, that impregnable barrier 
through which the German Panzer divisions burst in 1940 
to over- run France; from the great wall of Jerusalem to 
the pill-boxes of Iwo-Jima. Permanent sea-castles have never 
been built on the sea for the simple reason that there is 
nothing there to defend. Yet there is no reason why there 
should not be castles in the air! 

Castles in the air! To most people this brings to mind 
a world of day-dreams and reverie, something intangible 
and rose-tinted. But there could be another meaning for 
"castles in the air" — a modern metal castle vital to the 
defence of the western world. North America is now an- 
ticipating the imminent arrival of atomic bombers and 
missiles from behind the Iron Curtain. Our only defences 
are fighter patrols and a very imperfect radar screen. 

Let us suppose that the western powers constructed a 
defensive ring of hydrogen-filled metal balloons with large 
cabins containing up-to-date equipment. These would not 
have their own power, but would be anchored to the ground 
and would be towed from the ground when moving from 
place to place. They would be covered with light but strong 
aluminium and would contain radar screens and remote- 
controlled missile launching apparatus. The hydrogen is 
cheap and four times lighter than helium. The fact that 
it burns could be overcome by constructing the cabin in 
such a way that it could be parachuted in the event of fire. 
On the approach of the enemy the hydrogen would be let 
free and the fortress grounded. They would be manned by 



a very few individuals if any and the instruments' readings 
would be radioed to the ground. The height of the fortress 
would have two great advantages: namely, that the scope 
of the radar screen would be greatly broadened and the 
interception and pin-pointing of enemy warplanes and mis- 
siles would be greatly facilitated. The fortress would be 
practical at all times since it would be valuable in the 
Meteorological department and could transmit long range 
radio and television. Finally and above all, the cost of up- 
keep would be considerable less than that of the jet fighter 

In short, this ring of air fortresses would serve the 
purpose of defending North America from a sudden air 
attack and would save the western powers considerable 
manpower and money. Castles in the air should no longer 
be a dream but a vital reality.

Again, T.C.S. has produced a championship football 
team and sincere congratulations must be given to all those 
who had anything to do with the team no matter how small 
their contributions. It is only the second time in the history 
of the School that a Trinity team has won the championship 
in two successive seasons and this year's team well deserves 
that honour. The story of those three crucial games can 
be found elsewhere but there are other factors that are little 
known to most but which played an important part in pro- 
ducing a championship. The first is the coach of the team, 
Mr. Hodgetts. At the beginning of the season he was given 
the remains of last year's team which contained gaping 
holes both in the line and the backfield as a result of gradua- 
tion. But Mr. Hodgetts took the task of filling these holes 
in his stride and he trained replacements to be equally as 
capable as those who had left. It is not an unknown fact 
that Mr. Hodgetts spent many late and sleepless nights toil- 
ing over different plays and ideas in the effort to produce 
a winning team. His infinite knowledge of football is one 
to be marvelled at and we wish him continued success in 
future years. 

Another factor was the mental attitude of the team 
itself. Trinity was definitely "up" for the Ridley game and 


that could be seen throughout the contest. T.C.S. took 
advantage of all the breaks and played a very intelligent as 
well as a hard-charging game. However, something hap- 
pened to the Trinity team in the week between the Ridley 
and Upper Canada games. Perhaps as a result of the fact 
that the team saw S.A.C. play U.C.C., and formed wrong 
opinions of the U.C.C. team, a trace of over-confidence 
entered the squad and they became slightly "stale". This 
was quite apparent in the first quarter of the Upper Canada 
game, but Trinity realized that it v/as going to be no easy 
task to defeat the tougher and heavier Blue and White team. 
T.C.S. came forth with a brilliant defensive game especially 
on the part of the secondaries and as a result, won her second 
Little Big Four game. 

Trinity was in excellent condition, both mentally and 
physically, for the St. Andrew's game. Playing on a field 
half covered with snow, T.C.S. outran and outfought a 
heavier opponent and as the final score indicated, had 
little trouble in pulling the Saints down to defeat. Thus, a 
second season came to a close with Trinity winning the 
championship. It has been said that a team is only as good 
as its weakest link, and it can be said that the reason T.C.S. 
did win the championship was that there were no weak links. 
Special praise must be given those who were awarded Dis- 
tinction Caps: Clark, Long, McDerment, Muntz, Phillips, 
Seagram, Timmins, and Watts. They were the foundation 
upon which the team was built and their excellent play in 
each game was the important factor in producing the cham-

T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY, October 19. 1951, at Varsity Stadium: Won 33-12. 

Trinity opened their Little Big Four schedule with a 
33-12 victory over Ridley College at Varsity Stadium. The 
team played a better brand of football than their arch-rivals 
from St. Catharines, whose consistent fumbles plus a fairly 
weak defense were deciding factors in the ultimate score. 

Phil Muntz started Trinity off on the right foot by 
going over for a major from the ten yard line after Hugh 
Watts had broken through the Ridley line and blocked a 
kick. Bob McDerment's convert failed, but the School had 
jumped into a quick lead. A fifty yard pass from Girvan 
to Bartlett helped bring the ball to the T.C.S. five yard hne, 
but a penalty forced Ridley to kick for a point. Long gains 
by Board, Muntz and McDerment brought the ball deep into 
Ridley territory but the Orange and Black retaliated with 
three consecutive passes by Girvan bringing the ball back 
into T.C.S. territory at the end of the quarter. A Statue of 
Liberty play set up a touchdown by Captain Dunbar who 
went over from the two yard line to give Ridley a 6-5 lead. 
McDerment quickly put T.C.S. in front again on a thirty yard 
run through the centre of the line for a major which he also 
converted. The School added another point before the end 
of the half, when Bartlett was rouged on Norm Seagram's 

The third quarter saw Trinity open with a pass attack 
which finally resulted in a McDerment to Clark pass going 
for a converted touchdown to make the score 18-6. Girvan 
of Ridley came back with four completed passes only to 
have his fifth attempt intercepted by Phil Muntz who made 
a brilliant catch and sprinted ninety-five yards down the 
sidelines for his second touchdown. McDerment's convert 
failed, but a few plays later saw McDerment weave his way

score 28-6, at three-quarter time. 

The final quarter produced Ridley's second and last 
touchdown; an end run off a faked kick set up the score 
for Bartlett who went over from the ten yard line. Girvan's 
convert was good, ending Ridley's scoring. Near the close 
of the game, Gord Currie added another five points on an 
end sweep to make the final score 33-12.

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. October 27, 1951, at Port Hope: Won 8-6 

Bigside produced their second victory of their short 
Little Big Four schedule, managing to eke out a victory over 
a well-trained squad from U.C.C. It was the closest contest 
of the series, neither team having a noticeable edge over the 
other throughout most of the game. 

Hugh Clark opened the game, kicking to the visitor's 
fifteen yard line. Upper Canada soon lost the ball but re- 
gained it after two Trinity plays had failed. A succession 
of off-tackle drives to the right by Bruce Thomas drove 
T.C.S. steadily backwards. A pass to Captain Bob Standing 
and a buck by Pete Dalglish brought the ball to the Trinity 
four yard line. On the next play Thomas crashed off -tackle 
again for the only Blue and White major. Thomas con- 
verted his own score. Trinity drove back, but a determined 
U.C.C. fine and charging secondary seemed to anticipate 
every move and prevented Trinity from entering U.C.C. 
territory. However, towards the end of the quarter T.C.S. 
finally moved in and Norm Seagram kicked a single point, 
putting Trinity in the scoring column. 

The highlight of the game came in the second quarter. 
An Upper Canada ground attack was broken up by the T.C.S. 
line and a holding penalty against the visitors on a third 


down punt gave Trinity the ball on the forty yard line. Bob 
McDerment then threw a perfect thirty yard pass into the 
arms of Jules Timmins who caught it on the ten and ran 
over for the only Trinity major. Co-captain McDerment 
kicked the extra point. 

The rest of the half was hard hitting, and both teams 
threw passes when they advanced over the centre stripe, but 
none was successful. U.C.C. came very close to scoring on 
the last play of the half when a pass from quarterback Pete 
Lindsay to Creasy was knocked down by Phil Muntz on the 

The only score in the second half of the game was a 
kick over the deadline by Phil Muntz in the last quarter. 
Both teams tried desperately to score but outstanding tack- 
ling on the line by Hugh Watts and by Muntz on the sec- 
ondary prevented the opponents from making any serious 
advances, and the game ended with the score 8-6 in Trinity's 

The game was very rugged from the beginning, but it 
was not slowed too much by penalties. Co-captain Hugh 
Watts starred on the line; the tackling of Board and Muntz 
on the secondary was outstanding, while McDerment was a 
mainstay with his running. Bruce Thomas' end runs and 
bucks and Hogarth's line play were excellent and caused 
deep concern among Trinity supporters throughout the

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C., ectsner-^. 1951, at Aurora: Won 22-6 

The final game between the two unbeaten teams was 
played at Aurora on a partially snow-covered field before five 
hundred cold but enthusiastic spectators. The victory gave 
T.C.S. its second consecutive championship. 

T.C.S. took the lead in the opening minutes when a 
fumble by S.A.C. was recovered by Dick LeVan putting the 
ball on the thirty-five yard line. McDerment, on the first 


play, went off -tackle and crossed the goal-line standing up 
for an unconverted major. Later in the quarter, Tony Phil- 
lips recovered another S.A.C. fumble. Phil Muntz ran the 
ball to the two yard line and on the next play went over for 
a touchdown. The convert attempt failed, making the score 
10-0 at the end of the quarter. The rest of the half was 
scoreless with Trinity receiving a numher of penalties, and 
the Saints tightening up their defense. The half ended with 
Co-captain Hugh Watts blocking a kick deep in S.A.C. 

Trailing 10-0, the S.A.C. team started the last half with 
renewed determination. Wilhelmson made a number of long 
runs which brought the ball into the Trinity end. However, 
T.C.S, gained possession of the ball when Watts intercepted 
a pass. The ball was advanced to the forty-five yard line, 
from where Phil Muntz broke free behind excellent blocking 
on an end sweep and ran forty-five yards for a touchdown 
which Bob McDerment converted. 

The high point in the game came in the fourth quarter, 
when the "busy little man", Phil Muntz, broke through the 
centre of the S.A.C. line and ran ninety-five yards over piles 
of snow for a major. The convert by Co-captain McDerment 
made the score 22-0. The Saints, who had been throwing 
passes continually throughout the second half to no avail, 
finally clicked. Captain Coulter Osbourne threw a fifteen 
yard pass into the arms of Don Paterson who ran the re- 
maining thirty yards for a touchdown. Graham converted 
it, making the final score 22-6. 

Eric Wilhelmson and Coulter Osbourne in the S.A.C. 
backfield with vice-captain Omstead on the line were stand- 
outs for a losing cause. Behind the outstanding play of 
Muntz, T.C.S. worked with precision,

In the last half of their season, Middleside won two of 
the four games. In the first game of a home and home 
series with Upper Canada College, they won handily 18-0. 
Bill Seagram made the first score on a kick when U.C.C. 
fumbled and the ball was recovered by Parker. Later, Upper 
Canada again fumbled, this time behind their goal line and 
dePencier recovered for the first Trinity major. The convert 
was made by Brown. In the third quarter Brown scored 
the second touchdown on an end sweep which he converted. 
In the final minutes of the game, John Seagram completed 
the scoring on a quarter-back sneak making the final score 

T.C.S. did not do so well against Lakefield, losing 16-13. 
However, they did hold the lead throughout most of the game 
and only succumbed to the heavier Grove line in the last 
quarter. Strathy scored the first Trinity touchdown on a 
flat pass from Bill Seagram ; Brown made the convert. Brown 
then kicked a single and later in the game went over for a 
touchdown which he converted himself. Ryder of the Grove 
played an excellent game at quarter-back while Strathy and 
Brown held the T.C.S. team together. 

In the return game with U.C.C, Trinity again won, this 
time by a score of 23-5. Brown scored twice in succession 
in the first half on an end run and a plunge through the 
centre of the line. He completed both the converts. In the 
last quarter, Strathy, on a brilliant pass interception, sprint- 
ed the remaining distance for an unconverted touchdown. 
Strathy again scored on a pass from Brown in the end zone. 
The convert was good. On the last play of the game, Upper 
Canada scored on a surprise plunge which caught T.C.S. 
unawares making the final score 23-5. 

T.C.S. were decisively beaten by Saint Andrew's Col- 
lege, 31-5. S.A.C. scored first on a run by Findley and the 
convert was made by Beltram. Trinity retaliated when a 
Saint Andrew's fumble was recovered by Leslie and on the 
following play Luxton went over for an unconverted major. 


In the last half S.A.C. put on a sustained scoring drive and 
Trinity were unable to stop the hard charging Red and White 
line. Although the final game resulted in a defeat, Middle- 
side showed much power throughout the season and many 
of the players look like future Bigside material. 

The following represented the Middleside Football team 
during the 1951 season: — Strathy (Capt.), Hj'lton (Vice- 
Capt. ), Brine, Brown, Bonnycastle, Colbourne ii, Coriat. 
Day i, Donald, Houston, Heenan, Leslie, Hendrie, Luxton i. 
Luxton ii, Mather, Parker, dePencier, Johnson, MacKinnon. 
McGlennon, Seagram i, Seagram iii, Sutherland, Tice, Young, 


The Littleside team ended a very good season with two 
victories, defeating U.T.S. 5-2, and S.A.C. 11-7. The U.T.S. 
game was played on a very muddy field and resulted in a 
kicking battle between Joynt of the visitors and Scott of Tri- 
nity. U.T.S. drew the first blood by driving deep into T.C.S. 
territory and kicking for a single. However, Littleside drove 
ritory and kicking for a single. However, Littleside drove 
back on some fine running by Trowsdale and Cumberland, 
and when U.T.S. fumbled a kick by Scott behind their goal- 
line, Anstis recovered the loose ball putting Trinity in the 
lead. The touchdown remained unconverted. It was late 
in the game when Joynt kicked the final U.T.S. point making 
the score at the last whistle 5-2 in favour of the hosts. 

T.C.S. got off to a poor start against S.A.C. when Cum- 
berland was caught behind his line for a rouge. The Saint's 
quickly followed up this score with a touchdown by Fawn 
who ran around the right end to put the ball over the line. 
Trinity finally broke into the scoring column when Ferrie 
went quickly down the field under a kick and made a tackle 
in the S.A.C. end territory for a rouge. But the visitors re- 
taliated with a kick to the T.C.S. deadline for another point. 
This made the score S.A.C. 7, T.C.S. 1. In the last half of 
the game. Trinity started playing as a unit and Cumberland 


broke away for two touchdowtis behind very good blocking. 
Neither of these was converted. Saint Andrew's started to 
throw a multitude of passes but a very efficient pass defence 
prevented them from scoring. Thus the final score of the 
last game of the Littleside season was 11-7, a fitting end 
to a most successful schedule. 

In their only game of the season, Littleside "B" were 
defeated by a heavier team from Lakefield by a score of 
18-11. Marpole and Boucher both scored Trinity touch- 
downs with Stevens-Guille making one of the converts. 

The following played on the Littleside team: — Mills, 
Cran, Giffen, Budge, Hargraft, Burns ii, Scott, Tanner, 
Ferrie, Anstis, Sherwood, Thornton, Cartwright, Lafleur i, 
Lafleur ii, Dalgleish, Burns i, Osier i, Cumberland, Trows- 
dale, Merry, George, Goodman. 

We wish to congratulate Cumberland on winning the 
Dunbar Russel Memorial PrLze that is awarded to the most 
promising player on Littleside. The prize is in the form 
of a football. 


In the annual tussles between Brent and Bethune, Brent 
proved to be superior by winning the Bigside and Little- 
side contests. The opening kick-off of the Bigside game was 
received by Bethune who got off to a fine start, only to 
fumble. On their recovery. Brent was soon put into a scoring 
position by a pass from McDerment to Currie, and Colbourne 
then carried the ball over for an unconverted touchdown. 
Near the end of the first quarter, Gordon increased the 
Brent score by sneaking over for a second major which he 
converted himself. This made the score Brent 11, Bethune 0. 
The score remained at this figure until the second half. 

On the kick-olT, Clark ran the ball back to centre-field 
for Brent. On the next play. Board carried the ball down 
the remainder of the field for another unconverted touch- 
down. With the score at 16-0, Brent once more gained a 
scoring position on an intercepted pass, but LeVan was 


unable to score on repeated tries. Brent finished the scoring 
on a pass from McDerment to centre Watts making it 21-0. 
It must be admitted that Bethune did try to do something 
to stop the powerful Brent machine but as can be seen from 
the final statistics, it was of no avail. 

However, Bethune did manage to salvage one victory 
in the House games. They did this by beating Brent Middle- 
side 11-5. Bethune scored first when Sutherland caught a 
brilliant pass from Brown and raced the rest of the way for 
the major. The attempted convert failed. Later in the game, 
Bethune added to this score when Brown ploughed his way 
through a maze of Brent linemen to score. He also made 
the convert. Brent retaliated when John Strathy ran back 
a Bethune kick forty yards to put the ball over the hne for 
the only Brent tally. Brown's outstanding play provided 
the spark for Bethune's only victory. 

Brent captured the Littleside Cup by rolling over the 
Bethunites to the tune of 17-0. Cumberland was the star 
for Brent , running for the three touchdowns. One was scored 
on a right end sweep which went around the left end and 
down the field sixty-five yards for the major. Scott added 
to the Brent score by kicking to the Bethune deadline on 
two occasions. Thus an end comes to another season of 
football at T.C.S. with Brent emerging \ictor in the House 



SCHOOL vs. R,M.C., October 13, at R.M.C.: Won 3-2 

The Bigside soccer eleven got off to a good start by 
defeating the cadets 3 to 2 in a very closely contested match. 
The game was played on a dry field, under brilliant sun- 
shine with the result that both teams played a fine passing 
brand of soccer. 

After five minutes of play, Brewer scored the first goal 
of the season for T.C.S. on a pass from Merston. Brewer 
scored again shortly before half-time and T.C.S. led 2-0 at 
the break. 

In the second half T.C.S. tired badly and after several 
good rushes, Peter Hylton, an Old Boy and a member of 
the 1950 Bigside soccer team, scored for R.M.C. Seconds 
later the cadets scored again to tie the score. Then with 
just five minutes remaining, Cowan put T.C.S. ahead 3-2. 
Although R.M.C. came close to scoring several times in the 
dying minutes of the game, time finally ran out and T.C.S. 
emerged victorious. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C., October 17, at Port Hope: Won 4-2 

In the second game of the season, T.C.S. found them- 
selves up against a well-trained team from Aurora. There 
were frequent goal-mouth tries by both teams and it was 
Brewer who scored the first goal towards the end of the 
first half, putting Trinity in the lead.

The second half opened with a more aggressive St. 
Andrew's team nearly scoring on a shot which hit the 
T.C.S. goal post. They were more successful on their second 
try, tying up the score. A mix-up developed in front of the 
St. Andrew's net on a pass in from Church, and the ball 
rolled over the line, apparently scored by Brewer. Brewer 
soon afterwards raised the T.C.S. score to three, followed 
by Merston, who scored on a pretty shot into the upper 
corner of the goal. 

Just before the final whistle blew, St. Andrew's scored 
from close in to make the total T.C.S. 4, S.A.C. 2. Brewer 
was the best player for T.C.S., closely followed by Thomas 
and Merston. 

SCHOOL vs. U.C.C, October 20, at Upper Canada: Lost 2-1 

Favoured with perfect playing conditions on this crisp 
fall day, the U.C.C. and T.C.S. first soccer elevens put on a 
display of fast clean soccer. Upper Canada scored first, 
banging in a rebound shortly after the opening whistle. 
T.C.S. fought back and after several minutes Merston tied 
the score with a beautiful shot which caught the corner of 
the net. After the half-time rest in which T.C.S. received 
some helpful advice from the Rev. Mr. Bagley, their former 
coach, both teams continued on even terms. Then with four 
minutes remaining, Dover was hurt, and while T.C.S. fought 
hard to preserve the tie, U.C.C. finally pierced the weakened 
defence and scored the winning goal. After the final whistle, 
everyone agreed that it had been the closest and best game 
between the schools in many years. 

SCHOOL vs. TRINITY COLLEGE, October 24, at Port Hope: Lost 5-1 

On Wednesday, October 24, the first soccer team had 
the pleasure of playing the first team from Trinity College, 
Toronto. The game was played on a muddy, rain soaked field 
but despite the slippery condition, the Toronto boys man- 
aged to score a one-sided victory over their younger brothers. 
The Trinity College team was sparked by an Old Boy, Rick 


Gaunt, while Dowker, Brewer and Dover played well for 
the losers. 

SCHOOL vs. U.C.C, October 27. at Port Hope: Lost 4-1 

Upper Canada College travelled to Port Hope for their 
second game with T.C.S. The game started at a fast pace 
and it was not until ten minutes had passed that U.C.C. 
began to get the upper hand. 

After hitting the T.C.S. goal posts on several occasions, 
U.C.C. finally scored three quick goals. The first half ended 
with the score 3-0 for Upper Canada. 

The second half opened with T.C.S. pressing hard, and 
Merston soon scored from close in. It was followed by 
several good tries by Brewer and Dowker, but luck was 
against them. U.C.C. ended the game by scoring from a 
scramble in front of the net. 

Thomas and Wilding played exceedingly well for a 
losing cause. 

SCHOOL vs. S.A.C., October 31, at S.A.C.: Tied 2-2 
In a return game with Saint Andrew's, T.C.S. met a 
much stronger team and they were lucky in holding the 
Saints to a draw. The game was hampered by bitterly cold 
weather and a very high wind. 

In the first half, T.C.S. had the wind at their backs; 
however, Saint Andrew's managed to get a breakaway and 
score first. Trinity retaliated when Church tied the score 
soon after. Merston put T.C.S. one up just before the half 
ended, booting in a goal from a pass by Cowan. 

During the second half, T.C.S. had difficulty in keeping 
the ball out of their end because of the strong wind, and 
after many good rushes, St. Andrew's tied the score. The 
last few minutes of the game were very exciting as St. 
Andrew's fought desperately for the winning goal; how- 
ever, time ran out and the game ended in a draw. Each one 
of the T.C.S. players deserved mention for his fine defen- 
sive play in the dying minutes of the game, while Wilding 
and Dover were outstanding on the offensive. 


SCHOOL vs. B.M.C.. November H). at Port Hoik': I-A)st 3-0 

In a return match with the cadets from Kingston, the 
first eleven was soundly beaten by a much improved R.M.C. 
team. R.M^C. played like a well-oiled machine and despite 
the cold and windy weather, they put on a good display of 
soccer. One of their three goals was scored by Old Boys 
Peter Hylton, who took a well placed pass and booted the 
ball into the upper corner of the T.C.S. goal. The Trinity 
team put up a very good fight and the efforts of Polak, 
Merston and Brewer deserve special mention. 

Despite the loss of their final game of the schedule, 
the first soccer team enjoyed a very good season and all 
games produced a fine display of soccer. 

The following represented Bigside Soccer throughout 
the season: — Adamson, Brewer (Capt.), Church i. Cowan, 
Dover, Dowker, Martin. Merston, Polak, Thomas, Wilding 


The Middleside eleven played three games this year 
gaining a victory and a draw against Saint Andrew's Col- 
lege while losing to Upper Canada. In the first game at 
Port Hope, Trinity defeated the Saints 6-1. Early in the 
game, S.A.C. took the lead but T.C.S. soon evened the score 
when Anderson put the ball into the net on a brilliant comer 
shot by Bingham. Although the visitors dominated the play 
in the first half by a large margin, Trinity outscored them 
by 2-1. However, T.C.S. showed some great power in the 
second half when they went on a scoring spree and kicked 
in four goals. Three of these were scored by Jackson, who 
played an outstanding game throughout the match. 

T.C.S. were outclassed by a more capable Upper Canada 
squad and were defeated 3-0. Although led by the good play 
of Mitchell and Anderson, Trinity was not able to cope with 
the fast-breaking plays of U.C.C. and were unable to pre- 
vent Wells from scoring all three goals. The second game 
with the team from Aurora ended in a 1-1 draw. On a hard 


field and with a cold wind S.A.C. scored first and held that 
margin throughout most of the game. However, late in the 
last half Bingham tied the score with a well placed angle 
shot. Play remained even but fast until the final whistle. 

The following represented the Middleside team: — Hulse, 
Mitchell, Godfrey, Mason, Spencer (Capt.), Oman (Vice- 
capt.), Bateman, Anderson, Jackson, Molson ii, Bingham. 


Littleside soccer played two games this year, both of 
them with Upper Canada College. The first was played in 
Toronto on a very dull day and Trinity won by a 1-0 margin. 
Kertland scored the only goal on a shot from his left-wing 
position. Although there were numerous shots on both goals, 
excellent goal-tending prevented any other goals from being 

On a muddy field and through a light rain, the return 
game was played at Port Hope and the match ended in a 
2-2 draw. As indicated by the score, the teams were very 
evenly matched and it was not until the final minutes of 
the half that the first goal was scored by Turner of U.C.C. 
However, Trinity quickly retaliated when Scott scored be- 
fore the whistle blew to end the half. 

T.C.S. started the second half with a quick goal by Kert- 
land and they maintained their lead for quite some time 
until Clarkson of Upper Canada scored on a high shot from 
tweny feet out. Again the stars of the game were the two 
goalies who time after time stopped determined drives by 
the opposition. 

The Trinity team consisted of Higgins ii (Capt.), Col- 
man (Vice-Capt.), Kilbum, Kertland, Scott ii. Wells i, Tuer, 
Davison, Dalgleish i, Ruddy, Roe. 


The annual post-season soccer matches between Brent 
and Bethune were featured this year by keen competition 


and fine play by all teams. Brent House emerged victorious 
in both the Bigside and Littleside contests while Bethune 
House won the Middleside cup. 

With the assistance of several members of the first 
football team the Bigside soccer cup was returned to the 
shelves of Brent House. The football boys stepped in to fill 
up the Brent line-up and they at once showed everyone that 
they could also play soccer. In fact all five Brent goals were 
scored by football players. Bob McDerment and John Gor- 
don netted two apiece and Phil Muntz scored once. Bethune 
failed to retaliate and the final score read 5-0 for Brent. 

The Middleside cup went to Bethune House this year 
by virtue of their very decisive victory over Brent, the score 
being 2-0. The game was very well played and fine sports- 
manship was shown throughout. Tlie Bethune House goals 
were scored by Church and Hylton while Mowry played very 
well for Brent. 

The Littleside game was played on a muddy field and 
once again the line-ups of both teams contained football 
imports. Brent House won the game 3-1 on three nice goals 
by Cumberland. Higgins scored the lone Bethune counter. 


On November 6, Doug Willoughby ploughed his way 
through mud and rain to win the annual 4.2 mile cross- 
country. His time was a very good 29.7 minutes under the 
prevailing conditions. He took the lead early in the race and 
gradually increased it over his nearest rival, Durham, un^il 
he crossed the finish line. This 55th running of the race 
found Brent House winning the Cup for the second con- 
secutive year. 

The results were: —

Our annual Christmas Show on December 15th went 
off very well indeed and was a credit to the boys and mem- 
bers of the Staff who put so much time into it. 

The programme opened with extracts from "The 
Taming of the Shrew," edited by Mrs. Spencer and directed 
by Mr. Burns. Saegert as Petruchio and Boughner as 
Katharina both did an outstanding job and were very ably 
supported by the rest of the cast. 

The Prep Forms put on a short play on Robin Hood 
under Mrs. Spencer's guidance, assisted by Mrs. Moore. All 
members of the cast played their parts well and the play 
was up to the high standard we have come to expect from 
Mrs. Spencer's productions. 

The Junior School Varieties of 1951 under Mr. Dennys' 
expert direction brought the evening to a close on a Christ- 
mas and Winter theme. The costumes produced by Miss 
Wilkin were the best ever! We all enjoyed the excellent 
sleigh, pulled by Rudolph and some charming reindeer, 
which Mr. Burns so cleverly designed, and also the wonder- 
ful scenery painted for us by Mr. Key. The full programme 
follows below: 


Scene I — In front of Baptista's House.

The Aurora BoreaUs is a natural phenomenon caused 
by the discharge of electricity in evaporated vapour between 
layers of air and cloud. This wonder often takes place two 
hundred miles above the earth. The colourful light that is 
produced is always brighter and clearer around the poles, 
but may be seen in many countries south of the Arctic 

At night on our island in the Georgian Bay, the hght 
can be seen readily. Once, while taking an evening canoe 
ride, I looked up into the starry sky and saw a glow in the 
north. Soon the hght grew more definite; a hazy ribbon 
with threads of bright colour running vertically was soon 
distinguished. The fluorescent banner stretched halfway 
across the heavens. It was a beautiful sight, compared with 
the twinkling starry hosts that covered the rest of the dark, 
cloudless sky. The pattern of the lights seemed to change 
continually, the lower hemp waving very slowly as if being 
blown by a light breeze. The colours, mainly green, blue and 
yellow, seemed to change places as the slowly moving ribbon 
flowed onward. 

Everything around me was quiet and peaceful; no 
sound came from the dense pine woods on either side of me, 
nor from the marshes near the rocky shore. The world was 
asleep, and I couldn't help thinking of some of the wonderful 
natural things in this world which are free to everybody 
and everything. 

I paddled around aimlessly for another hour, gazing 
at the stars, the moon, and the eerie glow of the Northern 


Lights. At last I came down the channel towards our dock. 
I tied up the canoe, and after a long last look at the wonder- 
ful lights, I walked up the steep path to the cottage, and 
went to bed.

Known for its pottery, weaving, and for the ancient 
ruins of Mitta, Oaxaca ranks among the many tourist 
centres of Mexico. 

The highway leads to a series of wooden bridges that 
in turn lead to the city's main street. The avenue is dotted 
with picturesque curio shops, bars and theatres. At length 
one reaches a great square called the Plaza. It is a park 
surrounded by apartment, hotel and government buildings. 
One of these is the Museum. Here the priceless ornaments 
and jewels found in the tombs of the Indian kings are kept. 
They are mostly made of gold and semi-precious stones. 

Pottery is made in the many colonial homes and is 
magnificently painted by the Indians. The dishes are sent 
to many parts of the world. 

Weaving is done mostly by the Indians, who design, dye 
and make tapestries on large wooden frames. Their work 
is usually seen on the street where eager vendors do their 
utmost to sell them. 

The great Mayan ruins of Mitta lie a short distance 
from the city. To reach them, a most precarious dirt road 
is taken. Arriving there, one is immediately surrounded 
by Indians who sell little stone idols which, they say, come 
from the tombs. A trying walk is taken in which one in- 
spects the tombs, temples and pyramids. The large temples 
have been built entirely out of solid blocks of stone placed 
firmly together. The Indians did not use cement and did 
their work by hand. 

The highway from Mexico to Oaxaca is certainly a very 
colourful one. Near Mexico one can admire the vegetation 
and the deep gorges between the mountains, but nearing 


Oaxaca the land turns into rocky, rolling hills. The high- 
way is crowded all year round by many tourists who are 
eager to see the great ruins and the attractions of the 
southern city.

Through the low ferns and around the big moss-covered 
tree trunks, hopped a small jack-rabbit, pausing every mo- 
ment to test the air with his tiny pink nose. 

Suddenly the rabbit stopped short. He had caught the 
scent of an enemy. 

As he glanced around nervously to plan his escape, a 
silvery-gray form bounded out of the thicket from behind 
him. The rabbit whirled around and stood hypnotically 
still, gazing into the perilous eyes of a weasel, awaiting his 
hideous doom. 

Just then, a sinister shadow floated noiselessly over- 
head, unnoticed by either the rabbit or the weasel. 

The weasel, being in his autumn coat of grajdsh-silver, 
was very conspicuous against the fall leaves. The rabbit's 
brownish fur matched the trunk of a tree which made him 
invisible to the enemy who lurked overhead. 

Then, without any warning, a brown blotch of feathers 
torpedoed down from the sky and descended upon the 
weasel. A pair of talons closed upon the back of the silvery- 
gray neck and with a loud withering screech the weasel 
dropped limp beneath the large bird. 

As for the rabbit, the spell was broken and he hopped 
away casually as if nothing had happened, while the Marsh 
Hawk fell to demolishing the remains of his prey. 

— p. N. Clarke. Form IIB. 


Under cover of the early morning darkness, a mysteri- 
ous figure tiptoed cautiously through the shadowy hall, 
listening every few seconds for fear he had been heard 


while he slowly made his way to the foot of the staircase. 
He ascended with the utmost caution. Like a panther stalk- 
ing his prey, he crept upward until suddenly as he was 
nearing the top. the stairs creaked. The shadowy figure 
stood stockstill for several seconds before he again ascended 
the stairs. Finally he reached the top where he waited 
until he was positive he had not awakened anyone. More 
cautiously than ever he walked straight to the nearest room. 
He opened the door and entered. It was the bathroom. Yes, 
he was ready — ready for his first shav^e.

It leaps from the craggy cliff, 

A tumbhng, 

Gurgling cascade of crystalline water, 

Only to plunge 

Into the gloomy depths of the pool below 

And move on. 

— E. H. tenBroek. Form III. 


If you had been lying where I was lying, and if you 
had seen the view that I had seen, you surely could not 
resist describing its magnificent appearance. 

Set in the frame of a million pines, and a thousand 
beeches, was a lake tinted by the brilliant, mellow rays of 
the setting sun. Intermittent wisps of wind rose and fell 
in the lofty boughs of the surrounding birches and suddenly 
changed the lake from a bar of pure gold to a thousand 
dancing flecks, lapping on the sand-caked shore, and dis- 
appearing again with the seemingly effortless wash of the 
foam-fringed waves. You could even hear, if you listened 
closely, the clatter of tinkling coins, as the wind grew 
stronger, blowing from some overhanging boughs withered 
leaves which floated down with the drowsy sway of a 
swinging pendulum, alighting on the now placid surface 


of the water and embarked towards the opposite beach. 
The unbelievable splendour of the sight grew stronger, as 
the blending tones of the setting sun mingling with the 
dusty clouds portrayed the most potent spectrum of blazing 
colour I have ever seen.

Captain of Rugby A. M. Campbell 

Vice-Captain P. F. M. Saegert 

Captain of Soccer E. S. Stephenson 

The Rugby team enjoyed a very successful season, 
losing only one game and that by only one point. This year's 
squad was undoubtedly one of the best balanced we have 
had in the past few years. We did not have to depend on 
one or two stars to "deliver the goods," but on the good 
team-work of everybody. This is as it should be. The team 
was also extremely fortunate in having two quarter-backs 
who were absolutely interchangeable. Both did a good job. 


First team Rugby colours have been awarded to the 
following players: A. M. Campbell, P. F. M. Saegert, W. A. 
H. Hyland, A. R. Winnett, W. F. Boughner, D. S. Caryer, 
P. J. Budge, R. Matthews, W. D. Rawcliffe, R. G. Seagram, 
T. M. Mayberry, F. K. Cassels, N. P. Godfrey, D. L. C. 
Dunlap, J. R. Ruddy. 

Half -Colours: E. H. tenBroek, D. E. Cape, P. C. A. 
Jennings, W. B. Connell. 


The first game of the season was played at Lakefield 
on October 4th. As always, this proved to be a very hard- 
fought game. Lakefield opened the scoring by kicking for 
a single point, but the School came back hard with a con- 
verted touchdown. In spite of some very determined drives 


by the Lakefield team, T.C.S. forged ahead and the game 
ended with the score T.C.S. 16, Lakefield 1. 

Lakefield paid a return visit to T.C.S. on October 10th. 
The School showed some good football in this game while 
Lakefield seemed to find it difficult to get really started. 
The School opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 
converted touchdown and added 12 more points during the 
rest of the game. Lakefield pressed hard at times, but were 
unable to score. The final score was T.C.S. 18, Lakefield 0. 

As usual, our annual encounter with Ridley provided 
one of the best matches of the season. The game was played 
on a cold, windy day on the Trinity back campus. Both 
teams were very evenly matched. The School opened the 
scoring with two rouges in the first quarter. Ridley came 
back very strongly with a converted touchdown and the 
game went into the last quarter with the score 6-2 in favour 
of Ridley. A brilliant converted touchdown by T.C.S. in the 
last ten minutes of the game put the School ahead again. 
Ridley made a magnificent drive and came very close to 
scoring, but the game ended with the score T.C.S. 8, 
Ridley 6. 

On Saturday, October 27th, U.C.C. Prep played at the 
School. The T.C.S. squad enjoyed a marked advantage in 
age and experience and the game ended with the score 24-5 
in favour of the School. 

The final game of the season was played at St. Andrew's 
on October 31st on a very cold and windy day. In spite of 
the fact that S.A.C. had a slight edge in age and in weight, 
the School gave an excellent account of themselves. S.A.C. 
took an early lead but T.C.S. came back to make the score 
5-4. A converted touchdown just before half-time put the 
School ahead 11-4. 

St. Andrew's rallied strongly in the second half to tie 
the score with a converted touchdown and a single point. 
A long kick for a single point put S.A.C. ahead in the dying 
minutes of the game. 

Final score: T.C.S. 11, S.A.C. 12.

House Game 

The Rugby House game was won by Orchard House by 
a score of 7-1. 


The first game of the season was played here against 
Lakefield. Lakefield opened the scoring and followed up 
with another goal in the second half. The second half was 
a very exciting one and with only three minutes left of the 
game, Eric Stephenson scored the only T.C.S. goal. Final 
score: Lakefield 2, T.C.S. 1. 

U.C.C. at T.C.S. In a very exciting and scoreless first 
half, both teams showed an eager spirit to win. In the sec- 
ond half Frank Stephenson managed to kick a fumbled ball 
into the net. Both teams were evenly matched and put on 
a good performance. Final score: T.C.S. 1, U.C.C. 0. 

The soccer team accompanied the football team to 
S.A.C. for their third game. The game was played in cold 
weather and the School team never really seemed to settle 
down. St. Andrew's scored their first goal in the first half 
and added three goals in the second half. Final score: 
S.A.C. 4, T.C.S. 0. 

T.C.S. at Lakefield. In the last game of the season, 
played under wintry conditions, T.C.S. tied Lakefield 1-1. 
Goals were scored in both periods, with Lakefield taking the 
lead. The T.C.S. goal was scored by Frank Stephenson. 
Final score: Lakefield 1, T.C.S. 1.

G. B. Patteson (1880-1885), who is living at 30 Cooper 
Street, Ottawa, writes to send his best wishes to the School. 
In his 50 years of banking experience he was hardly ever 
absent from illness, but for the past year he has been con- 
fined to his house. Mr. Patteson was born in Port Hope and 
his grandfather was Ralph Jones, who lived on the Base 



Charles Lyall ('37-'41) who was married last summer

Colours in Canada. The School felt very proud to know 
that two Old Boys were selected for such important duties.

most of the other students at Middlebury attended inde-

more to offer than all of the others put together."

On December 5th a very successful gathering of Old Boys 
was held at the Rideau Club in Ottawa. R. D. Mulholland 
and Eric Morse made all the arrangements, assisted by 
Peter Roper and several other Old Boys. It was the first 
T.C.S. reunion in Ottawa for some ten years, and though 
the younger Old Boys were nearly all away at Universities 
or on Active Service there was an exceptionally good turn- 


The Headmaster spoke briefly about the School, its 
accomplishments and needs, and the part it should play in 
Canadian life. He noted with pleasure that the Deputy 
Minister of National Defence, Max MacKenzie, was an Old 
Boy and that two M.P.'s, George Fulford and George Hees,

DR. C. D. PARFITT ('87-'90) 

Dr. Parfitt's sudden death on November 20th, while 
visiting his daughter in Boston, brought a deep sense of 
personal loss to the hundreds of people who had known him 
as a most kind friend and distinguished physician. 

For many years, he had been a noted specialist in 
Tuberculosis and Medical Director of the Calydor Sana- 
torium in Gravenhurst. He was a contemporary of Sir 
WiUiam Osier at Johns Hopkins and he seemed to have so 
many of the characteristics which made Osier beloved by 
all who knew him. 

At T.C.S. he was a Prefect, and his schoolmates often 
spoke of his upright character and interest in others. He 
went on to Trinity College, Toronto, where he took his medi- 
cal degree. He did postgraduate work in London, Cambridge, 
England, Vienna and at Johns Hopkins, Baltimore. He re- 
ceived his M.R.C.S., and was made an F.R.C.P. He retired 
from active practice in 1938. The School sends its deep 
sympathy to Mrs. Parfitt and her family.

The whole School was shocked to learn of the death of 

His Majesty, King George VI, on the morning of the sixth 

of February, and it was with great sorrow that we gathered 

in the Chapel on that morning to pay a short tribute to the 

man who has been at the head of our Commonwealth for 

the past sixteen years. Considering all that has been said 

about King George, may we simply extend a feeling of deep 

sympathy to all the members of the Royal family, and a 

sincere expression of loyalty to our new Queen, Elizabeth 

the Second. 

• • • • 

Canada was the first nation of the Commonwealth 
to declare Princess Elizabeth Queen of the Realm, and this 


fact brings to mind the realization that this is nearly the 
last tie holdmg Canada to Great Britain. One hundred years 
ago, we were an integral part of the British Empire, now 
we consider ourselves in name a member of the Common- 
wealth, and declare our allegiance to the monarch of Eng- 
land, and nothing more. 

In the last year, the question of Canadian autonomy 
has been many times in the forefront of the news. There 
has been much discussion pertaining to the singing of the 
British National Anthem, and many people feel that 
Canada should have her own national anthem, perhaps 
"O Canada", and completely do away with the singing of 
our present one. Another matter concerns the flag of our 
country. There has been a strong movement recently to 
obtain a distinctly Canadian flag. Some ag^ee that there 
should be a Union Jack in one corner, but at any rate, a 
design that one can look up to and say that there is a real 
flag for Canada. 

The third and most recent matter is the appointment 
of Mr. Vincent Massey to the post of Governor-General of 
our country. There can be no doubt that he is the best man 
for the position, but in appointing him to the office, a tra- 
dition that no Canadian ever becomes Governor-General, has 
been broken. The question that arises is that if Vincent 
Massey were to be forced by some accident to give up the 
post, would another Canadian take his place? If so, we are 
setting a precedent that is just another step forward in 
Canada's complete nationalism. 

Having given the three recent examples of this national- 
istic spirit, let us discuss this trend, and see what good it 
can do for the nation and the world. Those in favour say 
that now Canada has broken from England, we should not 
remain partially attached to our former mother country, but 
break all these last ties and become a nation completely 
independent, strengthening ourselves to become a great 
power in the world. They feel that there is not enough 
spirit of really being a Canadian, and that if we carried 
through with these plans the situation would be greatly 


improved. On the other side of the case, we have the strong 
argument that to gain peace in the world today, we must 
strive for a feeling of internationalism, not nationalism. 
As long as we are single nations, bickering amongst our- 
selves, there can be no hope of setthng the great problem of 
Communism. Surely the disarmament talks in both these 
last months, and after the last war, failed largely because 
of the unyielding nationalistic spirit that no country would 
lay aside for the good of the world. Hence they say that 
this move for greater nationalism is the wrong plan for the 
eventual success of peace in the world. 

It is the custom that a publicly published paper should 
present unbiased view of the matter under discussion, but 
let us conclude by stating that having, we hope, given a fair 
report on both sides of this question, we would now say 
quite firmly that we beheve that the second argument holds 
more vision and insight for the future of this country and 
the part it will play in the co-operation of nations in the 
peaceful world we hope to achieve. 



The wonder of the Epiphany season was the theme of 
a sermon by the Rev. Terence Crosthwaite ('17-'20), Rector 
of St. Alban's, Toronto, on Sunday, January 13. 

In opening, Mr. Crosthwaite, an Old Boy of the School, 
expressed his wish that the new Chapel would mean as much 
to the present generation of students as the old one did 
to his. 

Turning to his theme, he reminded us that we are 
celebrating the anniversary of the Wise Men's visit to the 
Holy Child at Bethlehem. It was an event full of wonder — 
a star leading three sages to a small baby in a manger. "For 
we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship 
him." Man's age-old quest for God is contained in this quo- 
tation, he pointed out. 

If we look at the three paramount facts of the Epiphany 
we find that the star is a symbol of God's love. It led the 
Wise Men out of the unknown into history and fame. As 
God led them, so He will lead us into eternity. History is 


full of such Stories — Joseph in Egypt and Albert Schweitzer 
in Africa are only two. God moves in strange ways at 
times to lead us to our profession. 

The Wise Men were probably criticized for "chasing 
after a star", Mr. Crosthwaite said, but no one is able to 
accomplish anything without such criticism. The sages 
represent today's leaders in art and science. They sought 
the Christ, and the sages of 1952 must seek Him, too. Un- 
less this happens, science will destroy mankind. Scientists 
are today's theologians, urging us to return to the old ways 
of living or destroy mankind. Music is in danger of becom- 
ing only "sound and fury, signifying nothing," if we fail to 
realize the necessity of "taking it to God". 

The Wise Men brought thoughtful gifts to the Christ. 
Gold represents wealth, which we must lay before the King 
or be enslaved by it. Frankincense represents ability of 
mind. This, too, must be brought to Christ or we will fail 
to grow spiritually. Myrrh reminds us that bitter things 
are in store for us. If we will bring our troubles to Him, 
He wiU bear them. If not, they may destroy us. 

In conclusion, Mr. Crosthwaite urged us to dedicate 
ourselves, our souls, our bodies, to God. Doing this, we may 
rise and serve mankind, humbly and well. 


Canon Lawrence spoke to us on January 20th on 
capacity, the ability to hold or to contain. He told us of 
a widow, the wife of a former oil producer, who in order to 
pay her debts would have had to enslave her two sons. 
Elisha, the prophet to whom she had gone for consultation, 
told her to get her sons to collect all the oil jars and pots 
that could be found. Then Elisha poured into each vessel 
new, fresh oil. When the last container had been filled, 
Ellisha said, "Now sell this at once and pay your debts and 
be happy with your sons." The number of empty vessels 
was her capacity. We receive according to our capacity and 


the best thing to have is the greatest possible capacity in 
which to hold all the good things that life can give us. Those 
who have a great capacity never grow old or are alone, for 
they are always busy. 

When we finally go to God the kind of vessel we are 
to take with us is faith and trust in Him. "And I am sure 
it is true that our capacity will be completely satisfied, for 
without faith it is impossible to please Him." 


On January 27 the Headmaster spoke to the School in 
the Memorial Chapel. 

He showed us a trilobite fossil which he said was about 
four hundred millions years old. Mi-. Ketchum compared 
this length of time with the period used to measure our 
civilization, beginning perhaps with the ape man of a million 
years ago and more modem man half a million years ago. 
Then the Headmaster outhned the development of man 
through the ages finding new ideas, theories, and questions 
to be answered. He said that the axiom, "use it or lose it," 
seemed important in our physical development. "We change 
through the ages," he said, "and we have lost that which 
we did not use." Answers to thinking man's questions of 
existence are found in Christ's teachings. Jesus teaches 
us how to live; He himself was the perfect guide for living. 
We must use our religion or lose it ; today we stand in danger 
of a world without God, a materialistic world without 
Christ's guiding light. In closing, the Headmaster said that 
we should "search the Scriptures" daily for the answers to 
the perplexities and needs of life. 


The Reverend E. M. Dann used "Worship" as his theme 
when he spoke to us in Chapel on February the 3rd. He said 
that the privilege of the Church of God is freedom to wor- 


ship, but man has divorced true worship from everyday 
Uving. Man thinks he can get along without worship as 
long as he does what is accepted by his neighbour. 

Unfortunately, our thinking is self-centered and we 
pray for ourselves even though we imagine we are asking 
God to help others. We must not only ask Him to help 
others but must help others ourselves. True worship is the 
giving of oneself to God. The cross is the symbol of sacrifice 
and we must learn to give ourselves as Joseph and Mary 
brought their only Son to Jerusalem to present Him to God. 


At eleven o'clock in the morning of the sixth of Feb- 
ruary, the School assembled in the Chapel and the Head- 
master spoke briefly. He said we were gathered to remem- 
ber the earthly life of a great and good man, His Majesty 
King George VI. It was enough now to say that King George 
had reigned over us for sixteen years and made a place for 
himself in the depth of the hearts of all his subjects by his 
constant concern for the welfare of his people, his courage 
and devotion to duty, and the uprightness of his life. As 
Christians we believe that his going from us means the en- 
largement and transformation of his earthly life in a better 
world beyond compare and beautiful beyond our compre- 

The Headmaster then asked our prayers for his daugh- 
ter, Queen Elizabeth 11, for the Queen Mother and all mem- 
bers of the Royal Family. 

The School then sang Psalm No. 23, the Lord is my 
Shepherd, and the Lesson, read by the Headmaster, was 
taken from the Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan, "Then 
Mr. Valiant for Truth was taken by a Summons." 

The Nunc Dimittis was sung and the Chaplain offered 
special prayers. The service came to an end with the sing- 
ing of "God Save the Queen," for the first time in the lives 
of nearly everyone present. 

As the School left the Chapel, the tower bell was tolled. 



The memorial service for His Majesty, the late King 
George VI, was held in the chapel on February 10. Mr. 
Cohu, for a prelude, played Wesley's "Adagio" on the organ. 
The choir, vested in cassocks only, processed silently, rever- 
encing an altar bearing the more sombre frontal of Lent. 
While the School remained standing, the Headmaster read 
from Mr. Churchill's tribute to the King, ending with the 
words, "God Save the Queen." Then the choir and School 
joined in singing our national anthem. Special prayers, and 
chants were used throughout the service. And the Hymjis 
were "I Vow, to Thee, My Country," "Unto the Hills," and 
"Abide With Me"; the choir sang a special setting of the 
Nunc Dimittis very beautifully. The Lesson was taken 
from the Book of Revelation. As a postlude. Croft's "Largo" 
in C was played. 

The Rev. Mr. B. K. Cronk of Port Hope United Church 
spoke to us, referring briefly to the greatness of King 
George's fine character. He went on to point out that char- 
acter is the most valuable asset a person can own. It is far 
better than money because it does not devaluate with chang- 
ing time. It is one standard which is acceptable in any land, 
and unlike dollars, it is not exchanged for any other 
standard. Giving an illustration, Mr. Cronk told of how he 
and his father had gone to a bank to borrow some money. 
They did not have sufficient security, and failure seemed 
inevitable until his father offered to sign his name as a 
guarantee. The loan was immediately granted, showing 
that the name of a good man is worth more than any other 
security in the world. 


The Rev. C. H. Boulden, a former master, gave the 
following address at the civic memorial service held in 
memory of His Majesty, the late King George VI. at the 
United Church on February 15. 


He opened his address by quoting 2 Timothy: 47: "I 
have fought the good fight; I have finished the course; I 
have kept the faith." 

"On the day of his coronation, fifteen years ago, when 
the King broadcast to the people of the Commonwealth, as 
no sovereign had ever been able to before, he said that he 
dedicated himself to the Ministry of Kingship. He thanked 
the people for the tributes they had paid to him and his wife 
in the streets as they drove to and from Westminster. He 
thanked those many from all over the Commonwealth who 
had sent messages of affection and loj'alty. He said that 
there was no greater privilege than that of giving service 
to others; and he said, 'The Queen and I, having assumed 
this grave and constant responsibiUty, will strive faith- 
fully to discharge the Ministry of Kingship to which we have 
been called by the will of the people.' 

"And having spoken especially to the sick and afflicted, 
he closed naturally and simply with words which we have 
become accustomed to hear from him — 'God bless you all.' 
He sat high — he and she sat high — in all his peoples' hearts 
and today hundreds of thousands pay quiet and sincere 
tribute to the way in which he has fulfilled that Ministry of 

"Here was COURAGE. I have fought the good fight. 
Here was DUTY. I have FINISHED the course. Here was 
FAITH — the source and strength of courage and duty. I 
have kept the faith. 

"These he possessed in no small measure, and that in 
times of peace as in times of war. His people are proud to 
know that he served in the armed forces and as a sailor 
bore his part in perilous warfare on the deep. They were 
inspired by the knowledge that with his fellow-Londoners 
he carried on in all the horrors and fears of the long and 
harrowing bUtz, and in the trying days of buzz-bombs and 

"It was no small thing that he and his wife bravely 
dared and took their chances with their people in their finest 
hour. But it was surely, at least, as fine a courage, and it 


was at least as exacting a sense of duty which inspired him 
as he first undertook and afterwards fulfilled the heavy 
tasks and responsibilities of Kingship. 

"In spite of ill-health — in spite of handicap — in the face 
of difficulty — ever helped by his brave and devoted wife, he 
never failed the people whom he was called to serve. Here 
was courage. Here was duty well done. 

"Never setting himself up as an example, yet he left a 
model for Kings and commoners alike. And so in times when 
crowns and kingships became elsewhere less secure, he 
earned in the hearts and admiration of his people a place 
most enviable. 

"Now, this was no superman, striding the world like a 
Colossus and by his greatness making all his fellowmen seem 
petty creatures of another order. He wanted not the com- 
mon touch — kindly man among his fellowmen, he quietly 
did the ordinary things in ways most natural and most 
admirable. Being a King (and every inch a King), in sum- 
mer camps with boys, in games with friends, in many and 
various ways he entered wholeheartedly into and enjoyed 
keenly the healthy activities of ordinary people. 

"In times when family life has been beset by changing 
standards and different ideals, the natural healthy family 
life of George VI has shown the world the beauty of a happy 
home. In days when the world duty had seemed to lose much 
of its meaning, he has shown the nobility of a life lived by 
the stern rule of duty. 

"And what shall I say more? For the time will fail to 
tell the countless ways in which his life touched the lives 
of his people. And it is a marvel to note how folk who live 
as far away from London and Sandringham and Balmoral 
as we do — yes, and thousands the world over — have learned 
to know and appreciate the King. 

"Men and women of every colour and creed are proud 
that they have served under him, and there is a keen sense 
of personal loss felt by the people of the Comjnonwealth. 
To that, many thousands of spontaneous expressions of re- 
gret bear witness. 


**Is it too much to say that this is due to the fact that 
he cared for the people committed to his charge, and served 
them faithfully? Is it too much to say that the words of 
Cecil Spring Rice seem fittingly applied to him? 
"I vow to thee my country 

All earthly things above. 

Entire and whole and perfect 

The service of my love. 

The love that asks no question 

The love that stands the test, 

That lays upon the altar, the dearest and the best. 

The love that never falters, 

The love that pays the price, 

The love that makes undaunted 

The final sacrifice. 
"I cannot forbear to speak of liis sincere Christian faith, 
matching those other quahties of his, both in its modest 
unobtrusiveness and in its obvious reality. 'He was sus- 
tained,' says Mr. Churchill, his wartime Prime Minister, 'not 
only by his natural buoyancy, but by his sincere Christian 
faith.' Here we see another bond between him and his 
Queen. It is well known that the Queen Mother has not 
turned to religion as one who is a stranger to it, nor as 
one impelled by the deep sorrow of her great loss, to fly for 
solace to vague and untried providence. We may thank God 
that by constant faithful habit she has already found most 
naturally where to go for consolation and strength. 

"So it was with him. It is unthinkable that one who in 
his earthly duty was so conscientious, so self-sacrificing, so 
particular, could have been anything but regular and de- 
voted and careful in fulfilling his duty to God. 'I have kept 
the faith.' 

"Do not for one moment think that it is a mere accident 
that a man whose religious life was sound and sane and 
good, was also a good husband, a good father, a good citizen, 
and a good King. Do you remember how Churchill went on 
to speak of his faith? 'During these last months the King 
walked with Death as if Death were a companion and an 
acquaintance whom he recognized but did not fear. In the 


end Death came as a friend after a happy day of sunlight 
and sport. After a good-night to those who loved him best 
he fell asleep, as every man and woman who strives to fear 
God and nothing else may hope to do.' 

Nothing is here for tears — nothing to wail 
Or knock the breast — no weakness, no contempt 
Dispraise or blame, nothing but well and fair 
And what may quiet us in a death so noble. 
"He has fought a good fight. 
He has finished the course. 
He has kept the faith. 

"But the struggle continues. The race is stiU on. And 
faith is needed still by all those who strive courageously 
and dutifully to play their part. (How truly that applies 
to us all.) How truly and how poignantly it applies in these 
dark days to those most near and dear to him. To the part- 
ner of his life and his throne — bereft now of him and alike 
of all the tender and devoted tasks she so long and lovingly 
performed for and with him. 

"With how sad a note it applies to his daughter, the 
young Queen — Our Queen — who courageously picks up the 
sceptre which he bore so worthily, as she assumes the high 
office with all its tasks, and with all its responsibilities. How 
she needs our loyalty and trust and help. How she needs 
our prayers. 

"As we ask God to strengthen and support her in these 
early days of her reign, we shall pray that He may bless 
in her through long and happy years, the high qualities of 
love, and duty and courage and faith, which made her 
father's life a blessing to the people committed to his 

"As we sing, we shall surely pray, 

God save the Queen." 

At Christmas time the School helped families in Mont- 
real, Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa and Port Hope. This year 
senior boys paid personal visits to the families concerned 
and brought back reports of them.

We are planning to run the Pat Moss Ski Camp during 
July as a holiday camp for under-privileged lads from To-

be in charge of it under the supervision of a master. This idea 
has long been in our minds and we are most anxious to get 
it into operation. 

There will be considerable cost in preparing the camp 
for the boys as we shall need a pump and more general 
furnishings, but the boys at the School will, we hope, under- 
write the running expenses.

The Record would like to make mention of the four boys 
who won Flying Training Scholarships last spring. These 
four boys, Jim Dolph, Chris Spencer, Ken Marshall, and 
Peter Hylton, took a one month course last summer, and 
were all awarded their wings and pilot licenses. The former 
Governor-General, Viscount Alexander, presented Dolph 
and Spencer with their wings when he inspected the Cadet 
Corps at the opening of the new Chapel last fall. This 
year Phil Muntz, John Gordon, Ron McCaughey, Mike 
dePencier, Charles Simonds, and John Hierlihy are writing 
the examinations to apply for the scholarships, and we wish 
them the best of luck. 



For the first time in the history of the School, the 
Cochrane Cup, given to the school which passes the largest 
number of life-saving candidates, was awarded to the 
School for the year 1951. Trinity amassed 990 points to 
win the cup, which was presented to Mr. Armstrong and 
Mr. Batt in Toronto by Mr. Cochrane, the donor of the cup. 
A few days later, the cup was presented to Mr. Batt in the 
dining-hall, and he spoke to the School, referring to the 
history of life-saving at the School, and how valuable it was 
to us to have a working knowledge of the art of rescuing 
drowning people. The Headmaster then congratulated John 
Bonnycastle and John McGlennon, who had obtained the 
greatest number of certificates in the past year. 


The School was very lucky to have a visit on January 
21 from Commander Fred Frewer, R.C.N. After Chapel on 
Monday the boys gathered in the assembly hall where Com- 
mander Frewer showed us two very interesting films; one 
was a coloured film about the latest Canadian naval convoy 
patrol in Korean waters taken by an amateur photographer 
on board one of the ships. The other was an extremely in- 
formative film about the peace-time operations of H.M.C.S. 
Magnificent. Between the films, he gave us an informal talk 
upon life in the navy generally and an outline of the naval 
training courses at Royal Roads and the Royal Military 
College, after which he answered the many questions which 
were asked. 

Commander Frewer had a very distinguished career in 
the navy in the last war, and he has to his credit the largest 
number of days at sea of any man of his age in the Canadian 

It was kind of Commander Frewer to come with the 
two excellent films that he showed us and this extremely 
interesting talk on life in the navy might well affect the 
future careers of some of us. 



On February 10, Mr. Robertson-Fortay showed us the 
films of the three-month trip which he and eleven others 
took during the summer months last year. The trip was 
through France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy and along the 
African coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The films were well 
taken and the scenery was colourful throughout. The pic- 
tures of the bull-fight were exciting and the films showing 
the Mediterranean surf showed some of the beautiful scenes 
they must have met. Mr. Robertson-Fortay's cousin, Govan 
Kilgour, from Toronto, one of the leaders of the trip, intro- 
duced the films and gave a running commentary aided by 
James Leech, another leader. 

Several Old Boys of the School who were on the trip 
came back for the occasion. The films of the trip proved a 
most entertaining subject. 


On the 26th of February, Shrove Tuesday, the School 
watched the traditional pancake toss in the gymnasium. At 
the signal from Mr. Ketchum, the putty pancake was thrown 
over the rope, and soon the floor was a mass of entwined 
bodies, one from each form. When two minutes were up, 
the survivors weighed their share, and the result was that 
Phillips was the winner, taking the five dollars for his form, 
VI-A. The usual half-hohday was enjoyed by all. 


It was our original intention to make some ni,ention of 
Library activities in each issue of the "Record"; as the 
School Library has an important part to play in the work 
and leisure of the School, it is only fitting that a regular 
record of its progress should appear in these pages. We 
shall endeavour, henceforward, to keep readers up-to-date. 


A recent analysis of the number of books borrowed by 
each boy, during his time at T.C.S., brings out some inter- 
esting facts. Some boys have managed to read, in three 
years, over a hundred books — a very good score; others 
read a steady dozen or so per year, and the individual figures 
vary considerably. There is, however, an uncomfortable 
number, the total of whose books read in two or three years 
may be counted on one hand — a small group of boys who 
obviously do not know what they are missing and who in 
later years may well regret that they did no more than 
flip through the odd magazine or scan the headlines of the 
sports page. 

In September, 1950, Mrs. E. A. Hethrington and Miss 
N. S. Hethrington presented to the School the sum of $365 
for the purchase of books of reference — the type of book 
which is perhaps of most value to a School Library. Thanks 
to this generous gift, we have been enabled to make the 
following additions, so far: 

The Encyclopedia Britannica (1950, 24 volumes). 

The Columbia Encyclopedia. 

The Oxford Junior Encyclopedia (6 volumes so far 
published) . 

The Dictionary of National Biography, 1931-1940. 

The Oxford Companion to American Literature. 

The Reader's Bible. 

Picture History of Western Man. 

The Oxford Companion to Classical Literature. 

The Story of Animal Life (2 volumes). 

The Complete Poems of Francis Thompson. 

We are indebted, too, to Dr. J. F. G. Lee, a benefactor 
of long standing, for his further gift to the Library of a 
leather-bound set of eighteen works of Joseph Conrad — a 
handsome addition to our collection. 

The following books have also been presented to the 
School and we wish to thank the donors for these most 
acceptable gifts: 

The Far Distant Ships, the Hon. Brooke Claxton. 

Heritage Chailey, Miss Elizabeth Muntz. 



Moby Dick; Listen the Wind; Insects of the Pacific 
World; The Mind in the Making, Mss Braucht, 

Hammond World Atlas, Mrs. F. G. Osier. 

Operation Cicero; 111 Met by Moonlight; Balkan Caesar; 
Claudius the God; Lower Than Vermin; Recollections of 
Three Reigns, Mr. P. Solly-Flood. 

A Century of Cricketers, Rick Gaunt. 

Son of Empire, J, C. W. Armstrong. 

War Below Zero; Round the Bend, Colin Ross. 

The Caine Mutiny, T. G. Trickett. 

Since September a total of 78 new books has been added 
to the shelves. 



T.C.S. 1900-1910 

Here is a collection of anecdotes and extraordinary 
occurrences which shook the red brick walls during the first 
decade of the twentieth century (sounds a long time ago, 
doesn't it?). Perhaps some Old Boys can remember the 

This one took place abDut 1906. The Headmaster, at 
that time Dr. Rigby, received a very indignant missive from 
a local farmer hinting at the inexplicable fact that large 
numbers of prize apples had been irretrievably lost from 
his premises. The Headmaster, we hope with a clear con- 
science, went down to the classroom where the whole School 
was studying and asked that all those who had stolen apples 


from this particular orchard should stand up. The entire 
School and all staff members present rose to their feet. 

It was a custom at this time for the Junior Prefect, 
that is, the last Prefect to be made, to treat the others to a 
supper in the little dining room. The menu generally con- 
sisted of chicken, ice cream, cake, pop and normal delicacies 
of that sort. One year a maid who had taken in the chicken, 
after going to clean away the debris, returned horror- 
stricken to report that all the boys would be dead by morn- 
ing! There was no carcass left! The boys had eaten every 
last bone with, she felt sure, fatal consequences! The 
matron, knowing the custom of the School, took the maid 
outside and pointed out the remainder of the School sitting 
outside the window cleaning off the carcass. Apparently 
the maid lived through her initial shock. 

Another year, on the other hand, a tragic incident took 
place at this dinner. The Junior Prefect had an uncle on 
the west coast. He asked his uncle, as a great treat, to send 
him oysters in the shell. On the great night the host proudly 
presented the delicacy. Then an awful discovery was made. 
Oysters had never before penetrated the wilds of Port 
Hope — ^there was not an oyster opener in town. The Prefects 
spent a mournful evening sadly contemplating their long- 
anticipated luxury. Not an oyster was opened and all had 
to be thrown out. 

There were also great cricket matches in those far- 
distant days. In fact, one year during the Old Boys' game, a 
T.C.S. bowler got a hat-trick at the expense of his father, 
one of the first cricketers in the country. At one of the 
matches — the final match of the Little Big Four — T.C.S. 
appeared to be doing very badly. The other team had chalked 
up a very good number of runs while T.C.S., now up to bat 
for the last time, had all but two men out and a very poor 
tail left. Then a boy named McNeil went up to bat. He was 
not a particularly good batter and was therefore told to 
block and hold on as long as possible. Instead, McNeil started 
swinging at anything and to everybody's surprise began to 
get runs. While T.C.S. held its collective breath McNeil got 


boundary fours and sixes until he utterly paralyzed the 
bowlers and finally won the match and the championship! 

At this time, the boys' trunks were not taken to a trunk 
room but were left in the corridor outside their rooms. One 
night a master came to a certain dormitory to turn out 
lights and found a locked trunk in the room. He ordered it 
out of the room and returned some minutes later to check 
that everyone was present. One of the boys was missing. 
He asked the others where he was and they replied, "You 
ordered him out of the room, sir." He did not recall doing 
this until the others explained that the missing one had 
been inside the trunk. 

Then there was the night of the great pillow fight. At 
that time the junior boys were all to leave study before the 
others and go up to bed. There was at that tinie great 
rivalry between Upper and Lower Flat (the equivalent of 
Brent and Bethune). On this particular night there hap- 
pened to be no master on duty in the flats, and the result 
was a tremendous raid by one flat on the other. The results 
were catastrophic. Twelve feather pillows were completely 
demolished! There was a thick layer of feathers everywhere. 
Numerous sheets were ripped and much assorted damage 
done. Needless to say, this was the end of the Juniors' short- 
ened study. 

At this time, the last Sunday of the term was known 
as Copper Sunday. The boys saved up for weeks before- 
hand all their coppers to put in the collection bag on this 
day. Huge mountains of pennies were collected and extra 
collection-takers were called in. Nevertheless the bags were 
very full and the boys all watched to see if someone dropped 
the bag. It is not known if this memorable event ever took 
place, but three times a year T.C.S. lived in constant and 
breathless anticipation of it. 

One year the Head held a big tea at the Lodge for 
many of the boys of the School. Nearing the end of the 
party it appeared that one of the boys was becoming ex- 
tremely restless and as the thank-you's stretched out he be- 
came more so. When his turn to shake hands came, he 


became very embarrassed and with both hands in his jacket 
pockets he backed out of the room. He had filled his pockets 
with ice cream for those who had not been invited and as 
the tea had come to a lengthy close, it had melted in his 
pockets ! 

Finally, we come to the old custom of "Singing Them 
Oif". In its original form, it consisted of a very friendly 
ceremony. On the last night of the summer term when the 
last year boys were packing, the other boys went in groups 
from room to room and sang, "For He's a Jolly Good 
Fellow", and said goodbye to him as friends. Then he was 
asked to make a speech. Though he may not have realized 
it at the time, the leaving boy was very much influenced by 
this last happy reminder of T.C.S. and perhaps it would be 
a good custom to bring back. 

— C. O. Spencer, VIA. 


The results of the questionnaire written on the last day 
of the last term proved very interesting to those who have 
tabulated them. A lot of helpful facts have been gleaned 
from the papers, along with some rather humorous answers. 

We found that in the first question, a surprisingly few 
number of people were able to answer nine of the twelve cor- 
rectly, Kefauver, the head of the Senate Crime Investigation 
Committee, was evidently unknown by all boys except those 
in the sixth form. Only a little better than 50 ^r of the fourth 
and fifth forms tried him and got the right answer. Averell 
Harriman, who had gone to Iran to settle the oil dispute 
was spotted best by the fifth form, who scored a total of 
65% right, whereas the members of the sixth form turned 
in a percentage of 33%. Vishinski was generally well done; 
however, it is interesting to note that one boy in the 
school considers that Vishinski is well known for his piano 
playing! Only 26 boys attempted to say that John Foster 
Dulles drew up the Japanese Peace Treaty, and this is es- 
pecially poor since Mrs. Davidson had recently mentioned 


him when she visited the school, Eisenhower was on the 
whole the best known. Nearly 95 Cc of the school knew why 
he had been in the news. We grant that this question was 
put in as a gift to those who had been having some trouble 
with the others. We were pleased to see that a good per- 
centage of all forms knew that Kurt Meyer had recently 
been granted leave to go home, causing a slight commotion 
in the department of war prisoners. Only five boys attemp- 
ted Rhys Manly Sale, who is the president of the Ford 
Company of Canada which was on strike at the time the 
questionnaire was written. We were surprised to see that 
a large number of the boys did not try to answer Lamport, 
who was elected Mayor of Toronto, and had his name in 
capitals across the front page of the Globe. Please take note 
that Lamport is in the advertising business, according to 
one person. Farouk was well answered, with 90% of the 
school getting him right. One boy said that he was in the 
news for buying $20,000 worth of baby clothes in Paris, 
which we're forced to admit, is quite true. Henry Cabot 
Lodge Jr., whose picture was on the front page of Time 
about a week before the test, was answered correctly by 
six people. He will be the organizer of Eisenhower's cam- 
paign for President if he is nominated. Frost and Mossadegh 
were answered correctly by 92% of the boys, however, did 
you ever know that Frost is a news reporter? 

In question two we found that hockey was the favorite 
player sport, with football close behind; that 51% of the 
school thought that hockey was the best spectator sport. 
with 42% going football. Football won a clear margin of 
73% in deciding the best team game, and 94% felt that 
sports were not being overemphasized, and that a L.B.F. 
hockey league should be organized. Finally we learnt that 
football is being criticized for the following reasons; — it is 
too rough (28%), too professionalized (20%), too many 
American imports (11%), too mercenary (10%), and be- 
lieve it or not, 9% felt it was detrimental to studies! 

The best way to use the old chapel seems to be as a 
library, according to the majority of the boys. About half 


as many thought it should be an assembly hall or a place 
to show movies, and that was all that was suggested. There 
was a slight variation on the best way to use the basement 
of the new chapel, and it was equally divided between a 
games room, an assembly hall, a library, and a movie-hall. 
Most of the boys felt the school needed an auditorium, and 
there were many other minor suggestions involving new 
basketball backboards, a new squash court, a cinder track, 
some new gym equipment, the school road paved, and the 
old question of a new school truck. 

History was the subject the school enjoyed the most, 
with English and Maths, close seconds. The school felt 
quite decidedly that Latin was both the subject they found 
the most difficult and the least worthwhile. The leading 
subjects recommended to be added to the curriculum were 
typing, botany, zoology, biology, shorthand, driving, and 
economics, but the general feeling was that we were busy 
enough with our present timetable. 70% of the school was 
strongly opposed to having longer periods with fewer sub- 
jects, but seven out of every ten papers said that boys with 
low grades should attend extra study, saying that it would 
improve their work, teach them how to study, and get rid 
of an element of laziness in these boys. Boys in the second 
form spend 3 extra hours on their studies per week, and 
this increases to the boys of the sixth, who spend 4y2 hours 
per week. 80% of the school find haven for their work in 
the classroom block, except for the odd one who relaxes 
on the gym roof! Only sixteen boys said that examinations 
weren't of any value, and the rest felt that they were the 
only way of making sure you kept up your work. 

The school reads an average of 3 to 4 books per term, 
and likes adventure stories the best, mystery second, and 
historical novels third. We fear that this indicates that a 
certain part of the library is being over-used, and perhaps 
we could read some books to improve our minds occasion- 
ally, especially since 65% of the younger boys claim they 
have enough time for reading. The older boys say they 
haven't, 66%, compared to 29% who say they have. Life 


is the most widely read magazine, followed by the Saturday 
Evening Post, Time, and Reader's Digest, and a host of 
others. Naming Canadian men was probably the most badly 
answered question on the paper. There was only one right 
answer in the second form, and the preponderance was in 
favour of wrong answers all the way through to the sixth 
form. The following percentages give the number wrong 
in each group: author 60Sr, poet 70Sr, composer 90%, 
artist 77%, and musician 75%. Thirty-nine percent, of the 
school can play no instrument, 26^: r can play the piano, and 
then there is a divergence encompassing almost a complete 
orchestra. Thirty percent, of the boys paint, 44% don't, 
and 26% can't paint. Forty-nine percent listen to the Hit 
Parade, 18% to the "Pops" concert, and 32% to neither of 

The variation in the last question was too great to 
tabulate, so we will conclude with the sixth question. One- 
half to one hour is the average time spent listening to the 
radio per day. The School almost unanimously felt that they 
should go to movies once a week providing that there was 
a good movie showing. The School was equally divided on 
the question of more school dances, the senior boys in favour, 
and the juniors against. They agree that another dance 
should be at Christmas, with Inspection Day taking second 
preference. One gay blade wants a dance every public 
holiday! With that inspiring thought, the questionnaire of 
1951 drew to a close. 


During the summer of 1951, a group of students under 
the leadership of Mr. C. P, M. Robertson-Fortay, Mr. R. 
Govan Kilgour and Mr. James Leach, made an exciting trip 
through Europe and North Africa. Mr. Robertson-Fortay's 
party was made up of Hargraft, Webb, Anderson, Black- 
burn, Ross i, Church ii, and Armstrong of Trinity, Andrew 
Macbean Ross and Percy Sherwood of Lakefield, George 


Holmes of Lower Canada, and John Govan of Edinburgh 

The "expedition" began on July 5th after the arrival 
of the Cunarder "Samaria" at le Havre, France. From 
there the trip proceeded in three automobiles, a Chrysler 
"New Yorker" and "Windsor," and a Plymouth "Suburban," 
to Paris. A few days were spent here visiting places of 
interest such as the Eiffel Tower, the Metro, the Louvre, 
Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Folies Bergeres. The moun- 
tainous and picturesque country of Switzerland came next. 
In Geneva, atttendance at a programme of Indian dancing 
given by a touring company was a highlight and in strange 
contrast to the environment. 

After Geneva and Montreux an easterly course was 
taken by way of the towering, snow-capped Matterhorn to 
the immense and awe-inspiring Rhone Glacier. Only with 
great difficulty did the three cars climb mile by mile up 
the narrow winding road, flanked on either side by walls of 
hard snow, over the Furka Pass and the St. Gotthard Pass. 
So far the members of the trip had experienced almost con- 
tinuous rain, but now the cars descended steeply into sunny 
Italy via Lake Lugano, where camping out on small col- 
lapsible safari beds was made much easier. 

Passing through Pisa with its historic leaning tower — 
from which Galileo demonstrated the law of motion by 
dropping objects of different weights to prove they fell 
with the same speed — the party finally reached Rome, 
capital of a once great civilization, crowded with memories 
of its heroes; the Pantheon, the ruins of the huge Coliseum, 
the Capitol Hill, the Roman Forum with its crumbling and 
broken arches, and the ever-spectacular Vatican City with 
its crack regiment of Swiss Guards. 

Next came Naples and excavated Pompeii. Mount 
Vesuvius was climbed and a night was spent near the sum- 
mit. Just before the dawn, the last 1,000 feet of ascent was 
made to the crater's rim to peer down into its sulphurous 
depths, filled with hollow echoes. Novelty was found in the 


cooking of breakfast over one of the many red-hot vents on 
the volcano's cinder-covered slopes. 

Naples to Tunis was a two-day crossing in an extremely 
hot Italian ferry, but en route the party was able to spend 
the better part of a day in Palermo, Sicily, At last the 
shores of Africa were reached, and the land of scorching 
sun and pestilential flies greeted the expedition"! Outside 
Tunis a country estate was visited and freshly-picked ripe 
figs tasted. The day ended by the host entertaining the 
party to an oriental meal! Then came a visit to the ruins 
of Carthage — testimony to a civilization more ancient than 
that of the Romans. After a day's bathing at a glorious 
beach near Sidi-Bou-Said, the journey was resumed along 
the coast road to Bone. A halt was called here for two days 
to enable the more unfortunate members who were suffering 
from dysentery to recover. 

At Phihppeville — home of the French "briar pipe" — the 
"expedition" spUt up by vote into two groups, one to follow 
the coastal route to Morocco, the other to take the more 
arduous journey to the south along the edge of the great 
Saharan Erg, with noonday temperatures above the 120- 
degree Fahrenheit mark. This group also travelled into 
southern Morocco to see Marrakech, famous for its mystical 
casbah and medina, and its strange setting at the foot of 
the eternal snows of the High Atlas in striking contrast with 
the great heat of this ancient walled city. 

The trip passed through Algiers, commercial seaport 
city of Algeria, in whose casbah the party met up with a 
band of Arab "rough-necks" who provided a bit of a scrap; 
Fez, the religious capital of Morocco; Rabat, the adminis- 
trative capital and official residence of the Sultan; Casa- 
blanca, commercial city of Morocco but much overrated by 
movie fame, and thence to Tangier. Here was the "eldorado" 
of the financial "shark", the racketeer and others engaged in 
nefarious conrmierce, a country where all currencies are still 
unrestricted, and there is neither income tax nor anyone to 
enquire about your business! 


Before proceeding to Spain, a brief visit was made to 
Gibraltar, Britain's unassailable fortress since it was taken 
from the Spaniards by Sir George Rooke in 1704. While in 
Spain one bullfight was viewed with mixed feelings. Then on 
to Andorra, the second smallest country in the world, and one 
which is protected by a high encircling wall of mountains 
in the fresh, invigorating air of the Pyreneean chain. South- 
em France was visited for its historic settlements of Avig- 
non, noted for its unfinished Roman bridge; Carcassonne, 
one of the most perfect double-walled castles in the world, 
of Albigensian architecture; Orange, famous for its triiun- 
phal arch and amphitheatre ; and then north along the Rhone 
Gorge to Lyons and back to Paris. 

From Paris the party headed north to the Low Coun- 
tries and Germany, calling at Brussels, Antwerp in Belgium; 
Rotterdam, The Hague, visiting the Peace Palace and the 
Law Courts, Amsterdam, the Isle of Marken in the Zuyder 
Zee and the eastern part of the Netherlands to Aachen; 
through the war-devastated regions of northern Germany, 
Dortmund, Hamm, Essen, all names well known during the 
great allied air offensive on the industrial areas of Germany, 
taking in the Rhine Gorge and the famous Rhineland Auto- 
bahn, to Frankfurt, Heidelberg, the "Oxford" of Germany, 
and Stuttgart on the western edge of Bavaria. Leaving 
Germany by the tiny country of Luxembourg, the party 
turned westward and headed for the English Channel. In 
England the members went off to visit friends and relatives 
for a week before reuniting in Southampton on September 
5th for the return passage to Canada in the "Samaria". 

In all, the party had covered more than 15,000 miles, 
seen and visited nine independent countries, five mandated 
territories, one international zone, one colony, and thirteen 
capital cities of the world, for a total expenditure of about 
$1,350 each. 

We understand that in spite of the many difficulties 
and vicissitudes which were experienced last summer and 
Mr. Robertson-Fortay's earlier decision to take no more trips 
of this nature, he has been prevailed upon by some would-be 



explorers to consider just one more expedition, this time to 
the Arctic to make a summer crossing of the Hofsjokull 
Icecap. He has our wishes for a successful execution of 
this new venture. 


The following is a summary of the activities and organi- 
zations of nine of the more important clubs at T.C.S. This 
does not by any means include all the clubs, but only those 
which hold regular meetings. 

The Political Science Club is under the direction of Mr. 
Hodgetts. The President is Watts, the Secretary Godfrey, 
the Treasurer Crawford, and it is confined to members of 
the sixth and fifth forms only. It meets usually once a week 
on Sunday evenings. At the beginning of the year a schedule 
of topics to be discussed for the next year is drawn up. 
These are divided into one minor topic to be studied by two 
boys for each meeting. These two boys give a short lecture 
on their findings and the subject is discussed by the whole 
club. Two main topics have been chosen for this year to be 
discussed on alternate weeks. These are "Religion and 
Ethics and their Effect on the Modern World," and "The 
Problem of Europe." 

Next is the Dramatic Society under the direction of Mr. 
Dale. The President is Clark, Vice-President Anderson, and 
the Secretary, Spencer. It includes all those with (we hope) 
acting ability in the whole School. It meets, on an average, 


once a week, although when a production date is imminent, 
more meetings are called. It has three principal interests: 
The Christmas Entertainment which is organized by the 
club though not restricted to its members; the study of 
drama and make-up, including reading plays and putting 
on each other's make-up ( ! ) , and the Easter Play which is 
the real work of the year. This is a full-length play, this 
year, "Laburnum Grove" by J. B, Priestley. 

There are two Debating Societies, the Senior and the 
Junior. The Senior Debating Society, under the direction 
of Mr. Dale, is confined to fifth and sixth forms. The Presi- 
dent is Seagram, the Vice-Presidents Watts and Anderson, 
and the Secretary Crawford. It holds, on an average, a 
meeting or debate every two weeks. The meetings consist 
of Pepper Pots in which each member draws a subject out 
of a hat and has to speak on it for three minutes with no 
previous prepaiation, and Impromptu Debates in which two 
members, one for and one against, give prepared speeches 
on a given resolution and then the chairman asks each in 
turn, without regard to preference, for a three-minute speech 
for or against the resolution. There is a formal debate about 
every three weeks on the average, and the club has had 
several successful debates with other schools. The Junior 
Debating Society is under the direction of Mr. Dening. The 
President is Heenan, the Vice-President Day ii, and the Sec- 
retary Board. It is made up of boys from the fifth form 
down. It has only been active since the mid-term before 
Easter, but has had several meetings since that time. As 
far as possible it holds one meeting every week. Its activi- 
ties are similar to those of the Senior Debating Society. 

Under the direction of Mr. Solly-Flood is the Current 
Events Club. The President and Vice-President are Ander- 
son and Le Van. This club, which includes members from 
all forms, meets between supper and chapel every Tuesday 
evening. As in the Political Science Club, two members pre- 
pare a subject chosen each week for the next week, and 
start the discussion. Unlike the Political Science Club, the 
topic is chosen each week and varies with the topics in the 


news, being therefore not nearly as broad topics as are 
discussed in the Pohtical Science Club. This is due partly 
to the necessary brevity of the meetings. 

The Art Club is under the direction of Mr. Key, with 
Wevill as President. It appoints a custodian who gives out 
the key of the art cupboard to members only. Its duties are 
to prepare decorations for the Football Dinner and the 
School Dance, and to make the set for the School play. Art 
lectures and displays are provided for the members and 
they are given full access to all School art equipment. They 
also enter their works in art competitions. Much successful 
work has been done this year with sketching, pastels, char- 
coal and particularly casein, which is a new medium for 
colours which mix with water and yet look like oils. 

Next is the Photographic Society under the direction 
of Mr. Lewis. It has he Van as President and Hendrie as 
Secretary. Mr. Lewis gives lessons on photography to a 
few of the members with the new R.C.A.F. equipment which 
is on loan to the School. Only members are allowed to use 
the dark-room and they do a great deal of Record work. In 
fact, the majority of individual pictures in the Record are 
supplied by the Photographic Society. 

Unlike the other clubs, the French Club, under the 
direction of Mr. Bishop, elects no officers. Members are 
taken from all parts of the School and a meeting is held once 
a week. During the meetings English must not be spoken. 
So far, much variety has been achieved during the meet- 
ings. There has been a lecture (in French) by Mr. Robert- 
son-Fortay, a game of Bingo (with prize), a French song 
evening, and word and card games — all in French. It is 
hoped that this club will do much to help members of the 
School to practise "living French". 

Finally, we have the Science Club, under the direction 
of Mr. Lewis. The President and Secretary are Norman and 
Cran. This club does not hold organized meetings, but Mr. 
Lewis instructs and helps members with individual scien- 
tific projects — some of which are very unusual to say the

The resolution that "Modem Youth Are Degenerate" 
was debated by members of the Senior Debating Society 
on January 30. For the government were McDerment, Levan 
and Muntz. Hendrie, Simonds and Hylton opposed the mo- 
tion. The speaker was N. Seagram. The Government brought 
out points referring to the West Point scandal, drug addicts, 
and decline in moral standards, which were refuted by the 
Opposition. When a division of the house was called, the 
majority opposed the resolution. The judges also awarded 
the debate to the Opposition. 

This same resolution was debated at S.A.C. on February 
1. For the Government, S.A.C., were B. Richardson, John 
Parker, and David Trent. For T.C.S., the Opposition, were 
Hendrie, Simonds. Hylton. The Government discussed the 
degeneracy of today's youth, referring to accident insur- 
ance rates, drug addicts, and education. The T.C.S. argu- 
ment was based on three main headings, ethics, juvenile 
delinquency, and culture. Trent of S.A.C. spoke very well. 
All members of the Opposition presented clear arguments. 
A division of the House favoured the motion by five votes, 
but the judges' decision was awarded to the Opposition. 

The members of the T.C.S. team, with Mr. Dale, were 
guests of S.A.C. that evening, and left after chapel the next 
morning. S.A.C.'s friendly hospitahty was appreciated by

MANNY and ARCH are entertaining HERBY, GIERS and

MICHAEL ANGELO is laboriously doing some "Charcoal"

a party, and SUDS, GUS, DINK and MOLLIE (where did 
they come from?) and RON are trying to break all DAN'S

for that latest bird house. NICK and THORNS have in- 
vented a new jigger-system to warn TERRY and DAVID, 
the quieter types. GOOFY, the mad Mexican, has calmed 
down shghtly. but the Lindsay game inspired him, and S-G 
had to get a new bed. 

On Bottom Flat, everything is peaceful and serene, 
except when FREDDY starts popping pop-corn. BENT, the 
Bad Boy, has reformed, and CREEP walks to breakfast. 
GEEK is in a flap about his love affairs, and GOOBER is 
always j'elling "E-par". The two new members of the flat 
are hardly ever seen, in fact when KNIGHT comes around, 
they are always late for bed. ANDY has been worrying 
Professor Edison, and HARD LUCK BOY was worried re- 
cently when he discovered that a cigarette butt could burn 
up a car overnight. 



Spaceship 2K29 made a swoop-landing on Earth. A 
young Martian of determined features stepped out. and 
hailed the slender, graceful towers of streamlined Brent 
City. The youthful traveller gazed in wonder at this para- 
mount city about which he had heard so much; he had 
thought Atomica, his native city on Mars, was advanced — 
but what he saw now was beyond conception. He was re- 
ceived with the detached air which spoke of the prevalence 
of the Inter Planetary Scholastic Exchange Commission that 
sent students of all ages to this most modern of modem 
educational centres. 

His stay was a series of wonders, imtil his oblong head 
began to throb with the plans of modernization he would 
carry back to Atomica. He was told that one of the main 
reasons for the revolutionary advance in Brent was due to 
the cataclysmic ideas of one of the early rulers of the then- 
awakening colony, and whose name had been Dr. Scott; he 
had inspired and encouraged several of the founders of what 
is now a modem metropolis, humming with activity. 


Professor Crane was one of these, and his theories on 
electronics have been studied by every generation since his 
starthng discoveries; another was Poditico Paul, an able 
politician whose study of mediaeval systems resulted in the 
development of our ultra-modern government; and still an- 
other was Flubdub, an early patriarch of the city who be- 
came known for his righteous ways — and of course there 
was his companion Spike, an engineer, whose interests in 
the ancestral automobile had caused him to design the first 
spaceship to successfully reach the moon. It was clear to 
the Martian that Brent housed a modern and capable race. 

He had been conducted through Philosopher Depoo's 
laboratory and there shown that able man's pride — a 
Chicken, a Chimpanzee, and two Moles, all of them ancient 
mammals by a strange mistake of Nature's, kept scien- 
tifically alive by three newly-appointed government officials 
in the course of learning their duties. 

Even before Dr. Scott had put forward his revolution- 
ary theories on square roots, colonial Brent was showing 
its leadership by defeating the more aboriginal Bethune in 
all its crusades against modernism, except in the Chess Cup 

The admiring Martian student gazed in wonder at the 
Robot Civil Service, which automatically gave fivers, 
switched lights, and recorded lates. He studied with great 
intensity the workings of the molecular generator, and the 
latest developments in the old atom splitter. He happened 
to glance out one of the splendid concave chromatic-aber- 
rated windows and observed in the distance an array of 
plumed mediaeval knights duelling about what seemed an 
overturned round table. This kind of scene was unbehevable 
in these times, but he was told that the broken battlements 
and crumbling walls of the ancient castle he saw were those 
of Bethune. This interested the student in the history of 
these people, and he learned from a young scientist who 
Skipped in at the moment with a bottle of Eau de Cologne, 
that Bethune had always housed a barbaric race, and that 
the limited mental capacity of the people had left them 



unable to cope with the prog^ressive Brent — the poor Beth- 
unites had shut themselves up in isolated little castles. Since 
then they had become very degraded, but Brent had taken 
on a fatherly attitude and had lately sent missionaries to 
convert them, notably Reverend MacKinnon, who seemed to 
be achie\dng something. But as yet, the results were very 
slow in commg. 

Psychologist Wunkus explained that at present Brent's 
biggest problem was to soundproof effectively that part of 
the metropolis which bordered on the primitive Bethune 
whose incessant tom-tom beating had caused considerable 

The Martian sadly realized that the time had come for 
him to return to Atomica. He was soon rocketing back to 
Mars, seated in the comfortable trans-Universe spaceship. 
He would introduce many Brentonian discoveries into 
Atomica ; yet, as he thought of the wonderful things he had 
learned, the Martian felt a touch of pity for the derelict 
Bethune . . . unfortunate city . . .

Preparing for war as a means of maintaining the peace 
is being practised now on a far greater scale than ever before 
in history. The world today is an excellent example of the 
conditions set up by such a system. But can one say that 
we are really living in peace? The whole world is existing 
under the threat of war. Over the globe small cases of 
aggression or petty misunderstanding are continually aris- 
ing. Any one of these may throw the world into a full- 
scale war. 

Both sides are well prepared for such an event, and 
both are struggling to maintain a lead in the armament 
race. Russia is fully prepared to fight an aggressive war 
and, if she succeeds in gaining an advantage over the demo- 
cratic countries, it is almost certain she will not hesitate 
to use it. It is imperative, therefore, that the United States 
and her allies continue to develop and produce, as quickly 
as possible, better and better weapons. 


At this stage, it is too late to stop the production of 
war materials completely. Any question of disarmament is 
practically out of the picture. The economies of the world 
are set at a wartime level. Vast amounts of money would 
be required to change the main industries of the nations 
from the production of arms and atomic weapons to the 
production of everyday amenities and luxuries. If such a 
change were attempted too quickly, it could result in the 
economic breakdown of the country. The other power, see- 
ing itself at an advantage, would be free to walk in. 

In the case of disarmament, who is to judge the quantity 
of arms required for protection against aggression? If they 
are necessary for protection, Russia's requirements would 
be far greater than the allies', to which the United States 
will never agree. Also, can we honestly trust Russia to 
fulfil her part of the bargain? It seems rather doubtful. 
Evidently the only possible course is to continue our present 

I do not saj' that this is the right way to peace, but 
under the present conditions, things have been carried too 
far, and it is the only course open to us. Any other method 
requires complete international co-operation. All nations 
would have to have complete faith in their neighbours. To- 
day, this would be almost impossible, as the United States 
and Russia spend a great deal of time hurling accusations 
back and forth. If any one country of significant size does 
not truly want peace, these systems will surely fail. As soon 
as one country arms, all must arm, and an armament race 
results. Eventually, one power gains an advantage, and war 
will probably ensue. 

In the example before us today, let us say that the 
United States gains a definite lead over Russia. Would it not 
be better to attack her and to defeat her and start again 
from the beginning, than stand the chance of Russia getting 
the advantage? If Russia leads, she would hold no scruples 
about attacking the Western countries. 

The only way that peace can result from such an arma- 
ment race is by means of an internal revolution in one 


country or the complete collapse of the economy of the other 
countiy. K the race continues long enough there is a very 
good chance for one of these possibilities taking place; but 
there again, will the race continue long enough? 

With complete and sincere world co-operation, peace 
can be maintained without arms bj^ an international govern- 
ment like the United Nations. However, without co-opera- 
tion, nothing can be done to guarantee peace. By preparing 
for war, we do not prevent it but merely delay it. The choice 
remains to us, whether we have peace in our time and war 
for our children, or war now, and a prospect for future 
world peace.

The winter sun, a flaming orb, 
Sinks slowly from its lofty site. 
Shadows, lengthening, light absorb; 
A contrast with the sparkhng white 
Of snowy ground. Trees' silhouettes, 
A mazy fantasy of lines; 
Buildings with dark aprons over 
Lawns. The labourer returning 
Shields his eyes, as though the pines 
The blaze of golden glorj' lowers 
Sinking into a bed of greying

Mr. Loon was having poor luck with his fishing. He 
thought, as a result, that the end of the world had come 
and sang such a lay of sorrow that a passing osprey called 
down to him to "clam up". Old Man Moon's reflection 
quivered with 'delight as he told of it to the stars, and they, 


in their turn, laughed so hard that several fell from their 
places in the sky and plopped into the forest below. 

Such a scene could only take place at night, for night 
in the realm of make-believe and dreams. It is the only part 
of the calendar day that we may relax with all nature and 
find ourselves. The most disturbed mind is soothed by her 
balm. To be part of her is to have received the gift of well- 
being. Just now, for instance, I should like to be taking a 
w'lalk, hand in hand with the mist, along her roads and hedge- 

How easy it is to allow our minds to wander while our 
pens strive! Because of this, life takes on a fuller aspect 
for such pleasant journeys and jaunts are enjoyed by our 
souls in various lands and experiences! The best of them 
happen during night's stay, for with her hand of darkness, 
she protects our dreams from eyes that would pry into our 
innermost thoughts. 

With sundown, realism vanishes. Sounds are no longer 
harsh, and Nature's scars are healed for a few hours by a 
silver salve. The brittleness of life is vanquished by the 
presence of a dream-world. Even we must leave our clay 
behind as we journey into its wonders. Often we fear the 
departure, just as we are loath to succumb to the final 
journey into eternity. Yet the joys which await us in the 
intangibilities of God's universe are surely better than the 
passing pleasures of the concrete toys of human flesh. Cer- 
tainly there is a time for realism. It is just as necessary for 
the progress of civilization as the day is for the very exist- 
ence of life. But does not civilization move ahead on the 
wheels of a great ideal? Summum Bonum — the Supreme 
Good — is not an action or a physical fact. It is a state of 

The loon will never read this essay. I'm sure it would 
be lost on him if he did. Remember, he raised a hue and 
cry over a lack of fish. We humans raise our objections over 
a lack of proper ideas. It is significant that the night 
mocks the loon, but never our aspirations to a better way 
of life.

We see that night is a friend. Why, then, must we fear 
her presence? If we believe that the twilight of life signifies 
its conclusion we are like the loon. In like manner, the twi- 
light of day shows the way to another world, and like para- 
dise, it is a world of beauty — a realm of the mind — the

The mist slowly retreated, like a defeated army, leaving 
behind it whispish grey stragglers, to writhe and suddenly 
disappear under the ever-increasing warmth of the sun's 

From the tube came the vanguard of the hordes of 
workers that soon would throng the streets. They dispersed 
rapidly, aU heading for the skyscrapers that were to be 
their homes for the day. The tube station again disgorged 
a struggling mass of people, only now the people kept on 
coming. The roads began to fill with cars, buses, huge 
trucks, and off in the distance could be heard the wail of a 
fire engine. Gradually the tempo increased. A policeman's 
whistle shrilled in short blasts with a stubborn insistence; 
cars leaped forward only to be brought to a shuddering stop 
at the next corner when confronted with an uplifed gloved 

The skyscrapers were coming to life again. Inside the 
walls wires began to hum, and little metal cylinders flashed 
with amazing speed along brass tubes. Typewriters began 
to click and on the first floor a tell-tale hum could be heard 
— the g^igantic printing presses were operating after a night 
of peace. 

Meanwhile, the sun rose higher and higher in the sky. 
Far away on the horizon a solitary airplane appeared, but 
it soon disappeared again. Down on the intersection the 
traffic policeman, during a lull in the traffic, removed his 
cap and wiped his face with a large handkerchief. The clock 


in the City Hall struck twelve, and soon the cafeterias and 
restaurants were filled with people busy with their bowls of 
soup and plates of tossed salad. After a cigarette and a 
cup of coffee they all poured back into the skyscrapers up 
the elevators, and back to their typewriters and adding 

The afternoon wore on; many a magazine appeared on 
the desks instead of important company papers, until at last 
the hands of the clock swung around to live. The streets 
were crowded once more. Each building was contributing 
its share of the hurrying, jostling crowd. They flowed like 
a river of bobbing heads down into the tube station again, 
onto the buses, and cars added to the congestion in the 
streets. After an hour or so the crowd on the sidewalks 
thinned out; a sohtary man could be seen walking quickly 
towards the nearest bus stop. 

The sun swung lower and lower in the sky. One by one 
lights began to go on in the office buildings as the army of 
cleaners took over the business field. A lone policeman 
walked his solitary beat, swinging a truncheon. Grey ten- 
tacles appeared from nowhere, slithering along the pave- 
ment exploring every nook and cranny; the pavement began 
to shine in the lamplight. A muffled silence came over 
everything. The mist had recaptured the city.

To do it right; what is the right thing 
Which to do is to gain applause, but to not 
Is a dire and ragged blemish, a clot 
On the character, which one cannot fling 
To Oblivion. 

Adam did not; his weak will to attain 

The forbidden sought only a chance; when takai. 

He cringed from the wrath of the Lord, forsaken 

And friendless, he fled the disdain 

Of Heaven. 


Brutus did not; swayed by highest ideal 
Undertook to avenge a dream; this when done, 
Saw too late the event of his deed; he who won 
Was dead Caesar, whose end was unmarred by the seal 
Of Shame. 

Napoleon did not; a mere dream born in grapeshot 
Suffused and unreal as the mist, then attained 
A glory unheard in time past, 'till all gained 
Dissolved in the vast Siberian wastes; and lay to rot 
In Time. 

To do it right; what is the right thing 
Which to do is to gain applause, but to not

On the chai-acter, which one cannot fling

Senator Bryan, who was an active member of the 
Central World Government, was getting old again. It was 
the sixteenth time it had happened to him, but each time 
his party had obtained permission from the Central Life 
Extension Control Board for him to have another life ex- 
tension, Senator Bryan himself had presided over the hear- 
ings when the new treatment was developed for the control 
of it. That was sixteen hundred years ago now; even before 
that he had had his first extension. There they had decided 
that before a person should have an extension they must 
have references to prove that they would be of use to the 
world. The Party had provided those for Bryan in the past, 
but now he was being slowly dropped for his ideas were too 
old and the later-born senators were catching up with and 
passing him. He needed another extension and he knew it; 
yet the Party had issued a hst of those who were not likely 
to get one and he was on it. Could he die now? Now, after 


all these years? He knew they had the drug for immor- 
tality, but they were keeping it until they found more living 
space in some extra galactic system. 

He picked up a communicator and got in touch with a 
friend of his who had information on all these matters. He 
knew of a man who had disappeared and everyone thought 
he was dead, but the certificate was not signed. Could it be 
that he had bought an extension and had pretended to die 
in order to escape the damnation of his fellow humans? He 
spoke to his friend for a long time and when he was 
finished he looked infinitely weary. There was no chance of 
buying an extension; everyone was incorruptible! 

But one thing he was told was that many more men 
had died whose certificates had not been signed; many of 
the health champions from all countries had disappeared 
as well. 

He made up his mind to call the World Times and tell 
them that he had decided not to accept another extension. 
He knew he would not get one anyway, but this would be a 
smart political move — probably the last he would make. But 
he had forgotten the number! He was always forgetting. 
He never- used to, it was just because he was near the end 
of his life. He looked it up and called them, told them what 
he wanted, then went to bed. 

The next morning his butler brought in the paper with 
the headlines "Senator Bryan Refuses Life Extension." It 
had his picture and two columns of shocked writing below. 
He smiled wearily and thanked him. The communicator 
buzzed. He threw the switch and listened. "After reading 
the paper this morning," the angry voice of the head of 
Life Extension stormed, "my offer to you is definitely off!" 
This torrent of noise was ended by a sharp click. Bryan sat 
stunned for a minute; then, as a frantic thought suddenly 
entered his head, he rushed over to his coat and felt in the 
pocket. His yesterday's mail was still there! He had for- 
gotten to read it! He tore open one plain-looking envelope 
and read "Dear Bryan: Our patrols have now found living 
space in the extra-galactic nebula A. 73 and I am offering 


you a position in the government of it if you will take our 
immortality treatment, (signed) Andrew Farling." 

Senator Bryan sat back on his bed with a sigh. There 
would be but a few more morning mails which he would ever 
agaiu have the chance to forget about.

EIngland was dreaming. There was not anything un- 
usual about that . . . for almost the whole world was doing 
the same thing, and it was a very pleasant dream. . . . Man 
was playing by the rules at long last. The rules were set at 
Geneva. Perhaps a handful spoke their thoughts, which 
were full of foreboding — but mainly England was dreaming. 

That g^-eat and wonderful dream turned into a night- 
mare. It was one of color — red, orange yellow, blue. Red 
blood, orangy flames, yellow tracer bullets, and blue skies 
dotted with Stukas. It was one of sound — the scream of a 
falling bomb, the wail of sirens, the roar of an explosion — 
the crying of homeless, orphaned, and injured children. The 
shock of the dream was felt all around the world. 

A dream; it couldn't really happen! Hitler was being 
cowed by Mr. Chamberlain and Marshal Petain — yes, it was 
only a dream — a dream to end all dreams. 

There was the greengrocer's daughter, for instance. 
She was twenty, and a fine girl — to be married shortly. Oh, 
she had her dreams — but became part of the big dream with 
her parents in their house that was. 

Was it becoming a nightmare? Were those sounds only 
imaginary things of the mind — the wail and scream of sirens 
and bombs. Were those grotesque shapes real? They were 
only the fantastic images of gutted buildings. 

England had been dreaming. Their Prime Minister had 
figured in the dream as had the old British Lion. Some men 
— like Churchill — ^were not playing the game. They had the 
nerve to think that the Bulldog couldn't chase the Nazis out 


of Poland unless machinery was oiled. Hitler face Britain? 
Unthinkable ! 

And so more crosses were added to Flanders. New 
names were added to the memory of man — the Maginot 
Line, Dunkirk. Dieppe. Malta, Hill 409, Calais, the "Rump," 
Saipan, Midway. Stalin, F. D. R., Chiang-Kai-Shek, — 

The voice of the B.B.C. on a June morning — "The Rt. 
Hon. Winston Churchill, Prime Minister" — and the voice 
that lifted and sustained an island people when they needed 

Are we dreaming today, or is life only one great dream 
in itself? 

Are we only dreaming that we are able to check the 
forces of evil in the world today? We must have something 
more solid than that.

*'Stone walls do not a prison mak(i, nor iron bars a cage." 

It was a cold, bleak sunrise that greeted my eyes that 
morning. For two hours I had been walking in the wood, 
simk in thought, till the sudden beam of sunlight caught me 
in the face and startled me considerably. I knew not where 
I was, but upon going a Uttle farther I came to a deep 
valley, clothed in the deep brown of the leafless trees. As I 
surveyed this melancholy sight I heard the whisper of a 
tune, and then another, soft and faint. 

"Ah yes," I said to myself, "the old prison of the Lang- 
don Valley." 

I looked more closely, an«'l there I saw it, a large grey 
stone wall, roofed with red tiles with a courtyard in the 
middle. Here were kept a fe>v of the Scots, with whom my 
father secretly sympathized, and who because the King had 
hated them for their religion, were shut up there. 

Walking closer, I heard the tune more clearly, and 
recognized it as an old psalm, used no more in England now. 
I imagined their sad, tearful faces turned to the heavens, 
their hearts flying far and high out of their enclosure, softly 
singing their ancient songs, hoping that one day they would 
again be free. And I visualized their guards, cold, im- 
personal, totally different men from these Scots. 

Suddenly the song broke off, and there remained in my 
ears only the rustle of the wind, playing with the dried 
leaves on the forest floor. I walked on, thinking, till I saw 
again the pleasant form-dotted hills of AUaster and in the 
distance the smoke from the chimneys of Portonbury, my

This has been a very busy term in the athletic life here 
at T.C.S. With such sports as gymnastics, basketball, shoot- 
ing, squash, skiing, hockey and swimming having full pro- 
grammes, every boy has been given the chance to participate 
in one of these activities. In hockey alone, there are over 
one hundred and ten boys who are playing on either one of 
the three School teams or on one of the six teams that 
comprise the intra-mural league. The squash ladder has an 
enrollment of over eighty boys who regularly take part in 
challenge matches. However, it is not the purpose of this 
editorial to review each different sport and to give an 


analysis of each team that has represented the School in 
these sports. On the other hand, a recommendation is 
the theme of this feature. 

It is well known by most that our first basketball team 
plays in a properly organized league and that a cup is 
awarded annually to the wimier of that league. But this is 
not the case in hockey. Although it is sometimes written in 
the newspapers that we play in a 'Trep Hockey League," 
in reality there is no such league in existence, but that all 
games played throughout the season are exhibition games. 
We have both a football and cricket league in which the 
team has an objective to play for, that is, the Little Big Four 
Championship. Yet, our hockey team, which plays more 
games than football and cricket combined, must be content 
with having to play games that have no real significance. 
As one solution, a Little Big Four Hockey League has been 
suggested; but with a schedule of only three games, this 
would not prove to be very satisfactory. Even if the schedule 
embraced home-and-home series between each team, the dis- 
tance between Ridley and T.C.S. would make the idea im- 

Therefore the recommendation put forth is this: that 
a Preparatory School Hockey League be formed under the 
official auspices of the Ontario Hockey Association com- 
posed of the first teams from U.C.C, Ridley, U.T.S., S.A.C. 
Lakefield, T.C.S. and Pickering. 

The schedule would be drawn for home-and-home games 
played between each team. There are some points concern- 
ing this scheme that should be noted. One is the matter of 
the officiating of the matches. With the league under proper 
O.H.A. governorship, competent referees would have to be 
used. We hire the best referees obtainable to umpire our 
football games and this should also be the case with hockey. 
Also, we would be playing under a definite set of rules which 
would not fluctuate between games as has been the case 
this year with "icing" and bodychecking rules. 

Taking into consideration that the other schools con- 
cerned would very likely be in favour of this scheme, it is 



hoped that it would not be too difficult to put this recom- 
mendation into effect. 


The Record would like to give heartiest congratulations 
to Peter Phippen, who recently won the Eastern Canada 
Gjin Championship. Phippen is the captain of the School 
gym team, and went to Montreal on March 8 to take part 
in the competition. We wish him the best of luck in any 
further competitions he may enter. 

At Port Hope, December 8. Won 12-5 

In their first game of the season, T.C.S. got off on the 
right foot by recording a 12-5 victory in the annual Old 
Boys' game. The play, although not altogether fast and 
furious, was quite exciting at times and produced many 
laughs from the spectators. 

McDerment could not wait for more than seven seconds 
to score his first goal and Currie felt the same way when 
he fhpped the puck in to score less than a minute later. How- 
ever, the Old Boys, getting their second wind (already ??) 
evened up the score on two goals by "Tiny" Thomson and 
"Sleepy" Don Gilley. Then the McDerment line took a rush 


which ended with the puck in the Old Boys* net, having 
come off the stick of the Trinity captain. But Don Fullerton 
did not appreciate this effort and witli Uttle help from his 
team-mates, he skated through the entire T.C.S. team to 
put the puck behind Ron McCaughey tying up the score. 
Trinity did not waste any more time in getting down to 
business and before the period had ended, both Church and 
Currie had scored. 

In the second period, T.C.S. had a monopoly on the 
scoring and increased their lead to six goals. Playing well 
defensively also, the School prevented the "Oldies" from 
adding to their score. The marksmen for Trinity were Long, 
Qark, McDerment, Yale, Brown and Phillips. 

The visitors must have gained their third wind in the 
final period, for "Tiny" scored his second goal of the game 
to the amazement of all while Crick Ketchum netted a single. 
But T.C.S. had the last word when McDerment scored his 
fourth goal by faking Joe dePencier completely out of the 
net and flicking the puck behind him. The last minute of 
play was an exciting free-for-all with all players taking to 
the ice and two more pucks being introduced. Although they 
were not the "machine" that they claimed to be, the Old 
Boys did put on a good show while McDerment and Currie 
were outstanding for the winners. 

T.C.S. — McDerment (Capt.), Watts (Vice-Capt.). dePencier, Currie, 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Brown, Phillips, Church, Timmins, Arnold, Clark, 
Lafleur, McCaughey. 

Old Boyn — Hughes, Merrie, Gilley, Huycke and Huycke, Fullerton, 
Symons, Hall, Butterfield, Thomson, Ketchum, dePencier, Gordon, Kerr. 

T.C.S. vs. B.M.C. 
At Port Hope, January 12. Tied 7-7. 

T.C.S. almost lost their second game of the season when 
they gave up a four-goal lead in the final period of a game 
played with the Royal Military College from Kingston. Play- 
ing extremely careless hockey, and forgetting most of the 
basic fundamentals of the game, Trinity looked hke a com- 
pletely different team from the first one that skated onto the 
ice to start the contest. 


Miller opened the scoring for the Cadets on a quick 
break that caught the T.C.S. team off guard. However, 
minutes later, dePencier caught a good pass from Currie 
and netted the first Trinity goal. Play was very even during 
the first period of play with no more goals being scored. 
Both goalies were called upon to make good saves on several 

T.C.S. built up a good lead early in the second period 
on tallies by Long, Yale and McDerment. The Army re- 
taliated with a single on a shot by Sullivan, but Trinity had 
the last word in the period when Yale scored his second 
goal with assists being handed to Long and Seagram. 

The Trinity boys kept up the pressure early in the final 
period when Long and McDerment both scored again before 
two minutes had elapsed. Then, for some unaccountable 
reason, the T.C.S. pucksters fell to pieces. The R.M.C. for- 
wards sifted through the Trinity defense and scored five 
straight goals without much difficulty. Old Boy Jim Mac- 
Gregor had a hand in every Cadet goal and displayed the 
brilliance with which he played last season here at T.C.S. 
McCaughey was given no chance in the Trinity nets and de- 
serves credit for being able to stop what he did. 

T.C.S. — McDerment (Capt.), W^atts (V-Capt.), Currie, dePencier, 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Brown, Church, Clark, Arnold, McCaughey. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. 

At Port Hope, January 16th. Tied 4-4. 

As anticipated, the U.T.S. game proved to be very hard- 
hitting, although it was free from any really dirty playing. 
The Trinity team went into the final period with a three- 
goal deficit but, undaunted, they put on a display of hockey 
that was truly spectacular to tie up the score. 

With the game but three minutes old. Bob McDerment 
took a solo rush and rounding the defense, drew the U.T.S. 
goalie out of the net to place the puck behind him to score 
the first goal of the game. The play went from end to end 
and five minutes later, the U.T.S. captain, Don Cossar, evened 
the score up on a screen shot that goalie Henri Lafleur failed 


to see. Although the action began to slow down slightly, 
John Whyte livened things up when he scored to put U.T.S. 
in the lead before the period ended. 

In the second period, the Toronto boys wasted no time 
and within two minutes, they had doubled their total on 
goals by Naylor and Riley. The play then became more even 
and hard, close checking by both teams plus some excellent 
goaltending at each end of the rink prevented any more 
goals from being scored in the remainder of the period. 

Trailing by three goals at the start of the final period 
of play, Trinity, determined not to lose the contest, began 
to play hockey at its best. Bob Arnold initiated the drive 
with a long shot from the blue line that ended up in the 
comer of the net. Minutes later. Mike dePencier slammed 
home a pass from McDerment to make the score 4-3. John 
Long finally notched the tying goal when U.T.S. was one 
man short. The last half of the period contained one thrill 
after another; dePencier hit the goal post, Lafleur made 
one brilliant save after another, and Clark, Watts and 
Arnold handed out some resounding body-checks. 

The battle ended with no further scoring and with both 
teams looking forward to the return game to be played in 

T.C.S. — McDerment (Capt.), Watts (Vice-Capt. ), dePencier, 
Currie, Long Yale, Seagrram, Church, Brown, Fhilhps, Arnold, Clark! 


At Port Hope, January 19. Tied 7-7. 

Paced by a Kappa Alpha import. Old Boy Tom Lawson, 
the Alpha Delts played to a seven-all draw with the School 
in the fourth game of the season in the Peter Campbell 
Memorial Rink. The game was free from any hard checking 
as each team concentrated solely on gaining possession of 
the puck. 

Bob Arnold put the Trinity team into an early lead as 
he scored on a pass-out from McDerment at the one-minute 
mark. Play resumed at a fast pace until Lawson scored his 


first goal by picking up a loose rebound and firing it into the 
open side of the net. Not content with having scored one, 
Lawson waited until the dying minutes of the period to put 
in his second goal after faking both Trinity defensemen out 
of position. 

In the early minutes of the second period, Bob McDer- 
ment tied up the score when he scooped up a pass from 
Currie and skated in to pull the visiting goalie well out of 
the net before scoring. But Lawson, the opportunist, put 
the Alpha Delts out in front once more when he took advan- 
tage of poor T.C.S. clearing and slipped the puck behind 
goalie Lafleur. Lawson still was not satisfied and five min- 
utes later he sank his fourth goal of the game. Trinity then 
retaliated when Skippy Yale scored two goals within two 
two minutes of each other. However, the visitors were de- 
termined not to end the period without having a lead of 
some sort and Logie did the trick by putting in a slap-shot 
from a face-off in the T.C.S. zone. 

Trinity went ahead in the scoring with two quick goals 
in the beginning of the final period. The marksmen were 
McDerment and Long. But the fraternity tied up the score 
at the half-way mark on a goal from the stick of Robertson, 
and then they once more took the lead when McClelland 
talhed. Trinity still would not accept defeat and Currie 
ended the scoring on a brilliant play that saw him take the 
puck out of his own zone and stickhandle through the Alpha 
Delt defense to score. Thus, the score ended with a seven- 
all tie. 

T.C.S. — McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.), dePencier, Currie. 
Long, YaJe, Seagram. Brown, Church, Clark, Arnold. Lafleur. 

At Port Hope, January 22. Won S-2. 

T.C.S. scored their first school victory of the season 
against their perennial rivals, the Grove. The Lakefield 
game, generally acknowledged to be one of the year's tough- 
est, was wide open and thrilhng from the beginning to the 
end. The first five minutes were rather ragged; however, 


tlie Grove team soon became organized. Ryder made numer- 
ous rushes into Trinity territory but was not able to pene- 
trate the defense. T.C.S. backchecking was seriously lacking 
and only the defense and goalie, Henri Lafleur, prevented 
Grove scoring. But T.C.S. did not take too long to settle 
down to real hockey and consequently, they scored. Gord 
Currie passed the puck over to Bob McDerment who, after 
leaving the Grove defense at the blue line, drew their goalie 
out of the nets and slid the puck in to make the score. 

In the second period, the lack of checking by the Trinity 
forwards resulted in another Grove goal. Uren passed to 
Ramsay from the corner, who put a beautiful shot be- 
tween Lafleur's legs. John Long led a number of effective 
Trinity rushes during the period, skating through the entire 
Grove team. However, he was not able to beat the goalie, 
who had to make some very good saves. The T.C.S. check- 
ing improved greatly and with fifteen seconds left in the 
period, Currie scored unassisted making the score 2-1. 

The third twenty-minute interval was rougher and faster 
breaking. Both goalies made some seemingly impossible 
saves. Trinity scored first on a goal-mouth pass from Mc- 
Derment to dePencier. Later, Lakefield followed suit when 
Ryder scored from a scramble in front of the T.C.S. net. 
Williams was given the assist. The play slowed down to- 
wards the end of the period and no more tallies were made. 

Ryder and WilUams played well for the Grove while 
Long and dePencier were the outstanding Trinity players. 

T.C.S. — McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.), dePencier, Currie, 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Church, Brown, Clark, Arnold, Higgins, Lafleur. 

At Aurora, January 26. Won 4-2 

In a well-played game that saw the action extend from 
both defensive zones, T.C.S. defeated a fast St. Andrew's 
team with a 4-2 score. Playing heads-up hockey, they capi- 
talized on all scoring opportunities while preventing any 
dangerous S.A.C. plays from scoring. 


T.C.S. started strongly but were held scoreless until 
Graham of S.A.C. went off for a tripping penalty at the 
halfway mark of the first period. A ganging attack paid off 
when Trinity netted two quick goals, the first on a blue-line 
shot by Arnold and the second, a minute later, from the 
stick of John Long with assists being awarded to Yale and 
Seagram. Trinity were then shorthanded by a tripping 
penalty to Seagram, but they ably held off the opposition 
until the nineteen-minute mark when Cosby slapped in a 
rebound from Mackenzie during a scramble around the 
Trinity net. The period ended with Trinity ahead 2-1. 

Watts increased the Trinity lead by sinking a hard shot 
from twenty feet out early in th second period. The Saints 
then put on the pressure but this was to no avail, even when 
T.C.S. were shorthanded on several occasions. In the dying 
seconds of the period Auld scored for S.A.C, putting in a 
slap shot from in front of the net decreasing the Trinity 
lead to one goal. 

Again, as the third period started, McDerment put 
T.C.S. well in front with a neat backhand corner shot after 
carrying the puck up from his own blueline. As in the previ- 
ous periods the Saints could not capitalize on the numerous 
penalties to the Trinity team and the game ended with no 
further scoring. 

The defensive work for T.C.S. was the important factor 

in the win, while Fisher in the S.A.C. nets was a standout. 

T.C.S. — McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.), dePencier, Currie, 

Long, Yale, Seagn*ajn, Clark, Arnold, Higgins, Church, Brown, Lafleur. 

T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY 
At Ridley, February 2. Won 10-5. 

For the first time in the historj'^ of the two schools, 
T.C.S. made a trip to St. Catharines to play hockey with 
Ridley College. The result of the hard-fought and fast- 
skating game was a 10-5 victory for Trinity. 

Long opened the scoring for T.C.S. as the game started 
slowly ; however, the pace quickened when Currie took a long 
pass from Bob McDerment and skated in to score. End-to- 


.,,. »*,**'" 



end rushes predominated throughout the rest of the first 
period, but good goahng in both nets prevented any further 

Two determined teams stepped on the ice after the first 
intermission and it took but two minutes for Ridley to 
gain their first tally on a shot by Copeland. T.C.S. 
quickly retaliated when McDerment, cruising in front of 
the Ridley net, picked up a pass-out from dePencier and sent 
it home for his second goal. Trinity increased their lead 
when Seagram deflected in a shot from a scramble in front 
of the Orange and Black net. Later, dePencier broke away 
to score another with the Trinity captain gaining the assist. 
The period ended with Ridley keeping the puck within the 
T.C.S. defensive zone and finally cashing in on a goal by 
Copeland, his second. 

Ridley got the jump on the Trinity boys early in the 
third period by scoring two very quick goals to bring their 
total within one of the T.C.S. mark. But at the four-minute 
mark, with a team-mate in the penalty box. Skip Yale car- 
ried the puck up his wing and into the Ridley zone. Seeing 
that he was about to be checked by two Ridley men, he 
dropped the puck back to Long, who found it easy to scoi-e 
on the prettiest play of the game. A minute later, Higgins 
scored on a screened shot from the blue-line. Trinity went 
far out in front when dePencier broke loose with two quick 
goals with assists going to McDerment. A tally by Legget 
for Ridley ended the scoring of the game. 

The innovation of playing at Ridley was a particularly 
pleasant one and we all enjoyed our visit. 

The line of McDerment, dePencier and Currie was very 
effective for the winners, while Evans, Copeland and Legget 
were the Ridley stars. 

T.C.S.-^McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.), Currie, dePencier, 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Clark, Arnold, Higgins, Church, Brown, Mc- 



At Port Hope, February 9. Lost 11-8. 

The Bigside team lost their first game of the season to 
the Sahara Desert Canoe Club by a score of 11-8. In a game 
that saw the lead change hands more than once, the Pad- 
dlers proved that they were well worthy of possessing the 
record of having been beaten but once in the last three years. 
The play was wide open and the passing of the \Tsitors often 
caught the Trinity team off guard. 

The Saharas drew first blood when Kirkum scored from 
a scramble in front of the Trinity net. This lead was in- 
creased later in the period when Kirkum scored again and 
when Haider, the former Varsity Blue hockey coach, 
netted his first. T.C.S. got one back before the end of the 
period when Norm Seagram circled the Sahara net and flip- 
ped the puck out to John Long, who fired it into the open 

A more organized Trinity team skated on to the ice at 
the beginning of the second period and it took them only 
sixty-five seconds to score. Church, playing for the first 
time on the McDerment line in place of the injured dePencier, 
took a pass from Currie and potted his first goal of a hat- 
trick. Five minutes later, Currie followed suit to score his 
first goal. On a ganging attack in front of the visitors' net, 
Church again scored, this time taking advantage of a loose 
puck and slipping it under the falling Sahara goalie. Before 
the period had ended, T.C.S. had scored two more, one on 
a long shot by Watts, the other on a good play by Currie 
with McDerment assisting. Thus, Trinity had built up a 
three-goal lead in an exciting second period. 

But the Canoe Club was not having any of this and 
they exploded for eight goals in the final twenty minutes. 
Led by Mara, Hadden, Cronyn and Haider, they completely 
bewildered the T.C.S. defense and found it quite easy to 
finish the game winners. The only bright spot for Trinity 
occurred when Church and Currie both scored again to com- 
plete their hat-tricks. Lafleur in the T.C.S. nets, although 



the score belies the fact, was a standout throughout the 
entire game. 

T.C.S,— McDernient (Capt.). Watts (V-Capt.), Church Currie 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Clark, Arnold. Higgins. Brown, Lafleur. 

T.O.S. vs. U.C.C. 
At Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, February 12. Lost 5-1, 

T.C.S. lost their second game of the season to a heavier 
team from Upper Canada College by the score of 5-1. 

At the opening whistle. Upper Canada instantly apphed 
the pressure and were continually m the Trinity zone, failing 
several times to score owing to the excellent goaltending of 
Lafleur. Trinity, however, soon found their eye and by the 
end of the period it looked like a well-balanced game with 
both teams supporting a shutout. 

As the second period commenced, U.C.C. again applied 
pressure, this time with three well-earned goals all in the 
first ten minutes of play. The first was scored by Paul on a 
pass-out from Birrell behind the net. And with renewed 
energy McKay increased the lead by slapping in a rebound 
from Capt. Pete Lindsay. At the ten-minute mark Al Gard- 
ner put Upi^er Canada well m front, capitaUzing on a pretty 
play started by Vice-Capt. Al Macdonald. With this com- 
manding lead U.C.C. settled down to an excellent brand of 
defensive hockey, holding the Trinity team off the score 

Upper Canada added two more counters in the third 
period, the first on a solo rush by Al Macdonald and the final 
one at the fifteen-minute mark on a tally by Pete Lindsay 
assisted by Don Leishman. Throughout the period the 
charge of the U.C.C. players dwindled with numerous pen- 
alties being handed out for their increasing number of 
illegal checks. However, the defensive work of the team 
again stood out while they were shorthanded and only after 
numerous shots did T.C.S. finally score, with Norm Seagram 
sinking the puck on a pass from John Long. 

On the whole, the game was a poor one for both teams, 
with U.C.C. showing undue body-checking and T.C.S. show- 


ing a lack of drive as the game progressed. The excellent 
goaltending of Carl Chamandy stood out for U.C.C., w^ile 
Henri Lafleur, in the T.C.S. nets, kept the score from going 
any higher. 

T.C.S. — McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.). Church, Currie, 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Arnold, Clark, Higgins, Brown, Lafleur. 

At Port Hop<», February 20. Lost 7-3. 

On this fateful afternoon a slightly overconfident Bigside 
team was sent on the ice against a determined and infin- 
itely better playing squad from Newmarket. The first 
period began well with the T.C.S. forward passing superior 
to that of Pickering. A well-placed pass from defenseman 
Bob Arnold to John Long set up the first Bigside goal. Long 
skated around the left side of the defense and shot the puck 
into the far side of the net, beating goalie Maclean, Ragged 
play in the T.C.S. goal mouth was responsible for two quick 
Pickering goals. At 19.15 the Pickering captain, McGuire, 
passed into a group of players in front of the Trinity net. 
Stewart received the puck and shot before the Bigside de- 
fense could clear it out. Scarcely a minute later Barter 
scored in a mix-up on a pass from Stewart. 

T.C.S. was saved in the second period by Ron Mc- 
Caughey's excellent goal-tending. Although both teams 
played a scrambly kind of hockey, if it had not been for 
his saves Pickering would have taken a great lead. On one 
of the rare occasions when Trinity passing did click, Norm 
Seagram scored on a pass from Long. 

In the third period Pickering completely monopolized 
the scoring. The Bigside defense looked as though it was 
a detriment rather than the asset it should be. As a result 
the third period was no more than a series of Pickering 
goals. The beginning of the end came at 2.45, when Mc- 
Guire took the puck at his own blue line, outskated the 
Trinity forwards, completely fooled the defense and shot 
from in front of the goal. Another unassisted goal came at 
6.30 when Barter dribbled a weak shot through McCaughey's 


legs during a scramble in front of tlie Trinity net. A pass 

to King from Drew resulted in another goal, miaking the 

score five to two. McGuire scored another unassisted goal 

when he stick-handled the puck from his own blue line, 

through the defense and scored on a hard shot into the 

upper right-hand conier. A hat trick was not enough for 

the Pickering captain. He scored again in a scramble on a 

pass from Barter. McCaughey was on his back and the 

defense could not clear the puck out. 

The game itself was not rough although seven penalties 

were handed out. Five of these were in the last period. 

Pickering showed an aggressiveness that is characteristic 

of a really determined team. They passed well and their 

checking, although not really outstanding, was enough to 

prevent Bigside from scoring. The best player on the ice 

was McGuire. Barter and Stewart also played exceptionally 

well for Pickering. 

T.C.S.— McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.), Church, Currie, 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Clark, Arnold, Higgins, Brown, MoCaughey. 


At Port Hope, February 23. Won 8-2. 

Sparked by the five-goal effort of Bob McDerment, the 
Trinity team finally showed signs of emerging from a mid- 
season slump by trouncing the visiting Zete team with a 
score of 8-2. Although they stiU looked sloppy at times in 
clearing out of their own zone, the Trinity boys showed 
much improvement over the previous two games. They were 
able to take better advantage of the breaks offered them 
and they played a faster breaking game. 

Bob McDerment lost httle time from the opening face- 
off to score his first goal. Just twenty-five seconds after the 
first whistle, he took a pass from Currie at the blue fine, 
skirted the defence and flipped the puck behind Coriat, who 
was filling in for the detained Zete goalie. Half way through 
the period, the Zetes scored their first goal when Meredith 
picked up a rebound and slid it under the falling T.C.S. 
goalie, Lafleur. This tied up the score. Although Trinity 


suffered two successive penalties, the visitors were unable 
to make use of the advantage through excellent defensive 
work on the part of Arnold and Clark. McDerment netted 
his second goal in the closing minutes of the first period 
when he slapped in a loose puck in front of the fraternity 

It took but sixty-seven seconds of the second period for 
Watts to relay the puck to Bob, who again made a score 
to give T.C.S. a 3-1 lead. Five minutes later, Gord Currie 
carried the puck into his own comer. Seeing that he was 
trapped, he passed it back to Watts who took a shot. Mc- 
Derment found it very easy to deflect the shot in for his 
fourth goal of the game. To the end of the period, the play 
remained fairly even with Trinity having some good rushes 
only to be foiled at the last moment by Leuty, who had 
finally arrived to take his place in the Zete nets. Lafleur was 
well tested on two occasions with shots from Mike Hall and 

In the third period, T.C.S. went well ahead by scoring 
four more goals to the Zete one. McDerment completed his 
five-goal stint when he caught a pass from Higgins and 
picked a corner for his goal. This effort was followed by 
talhes from the sticks of Archie Church and Currie, with 
McDerment picking up two more points on assists. Old Boy 
Chris Ketchum scored the Zete goal when he intercepted a 
Trinity pass and skated in to beat Lafleur. Yale rounded 
out the T.C.S. scoring when he took the puck from within 
his own blue line and outran the Zete defence to score. 

T.C.S.— McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.), Church, Currie, 
Lc»\g, Yale, Seagram, Clark, Higgins, Arnold, Brown, Laflexir. 


The Middleside hockey team has played four games thus 
far this season. Under the guidance of Mr. Key they have 
produced two victories, a tie, and a defeat. In their first 
game, played here against St. Andrew's College, the team 
started out badly, bowing to a much more organized S.A.C. 


team by a score of 6-0. Lack of condition seemed to be a 
large factor in the loss plus a tendency to be careless while 
clearing the puck out of their own zone. Although Trinity 
became more dangerous in the final period, the Saints pre- 
vented the team from scoring. 

The game with Lakefield, resulting in a T.C.S. victory, 
was extremely fast and exciting. The final score was 3-2 
and as the score indicates, the game was very tightly played. 
Lakefield struck first with a goal by Hall, but before the 
first period ended, Bateman had tied the score. In the second 
period Lakefield again went ahead only to have Trinity even 
things up with a goal by Johnson. With less than one 
minute remaining in the game, Johnson got a breakaway 
for Trinity, but his attempt was foiled by the Lakefield 
goalie. However, a rebound occurred which was picked up 
by Donald, who beat the Grove goalie to win the game. 

A 3-3 tie was the final result of a game played against 
U.T.S. on our home ice. Trinity jumped into an early lead 
when Donald scored at the thiily-second mark and one 
minute later, they bolstered this lead with a goal from the 
stick of MacCosham. But U.T.S. started playing steady 
hockey, and by the third period had netted three goals to 
overcome the T.C.S. lead. However, in the final minutes of 
the game, Bateman made the final T.C.S. tally to produce 
the 3-3 tie. 

T.C.S. won a decisive 8-0 victory at the expense of Upper 
Canada College, also on home ice. Trinity kept the puck 
within the U.C.C. zone throughout most of the game, al- 
though on two occasions Coriat was called upon to make 
brilliant saves in the Trinity nets. 

Marksmen for Trinity were Leslie, Jackman, Bateman, 
West, J. Seagram, Donald, Mather, and D. Osier. 

The following represented the Middleside team for these 
games: Jackman (Capt.), Johnson (Vice-Capt.), Mather. 
LeVan, Seagram W., West, MacCosham, Donald, Seagram 
J., Osier D., Bateman, Webb, Giffen, Bums P., Parker, 
Coriat, Leslie. 



The Littleside hockey team, under the coaching of Mr. 
Hass, has remained undefeated in their fii-st five games of 
the present season. They produced their first victory in 
Union ville. by defeating Upper Canada College, 7-4. Leading 
throughout the game, T.C.S. went ahead in the first period 
on two goals by Cumberland and a single by Overholt. Later 
in the game, two more goals by Cumberland and a pair 
from Ketchum prevented U.C.C. from threatening. 

The Littleside team downed St. Andrew's College with 
a 6-4 victory in a game played in Port Hope. Neither team 
took a substantial lead until the third period when T.C.S. 
went ahead to build their two-goal margin. Cumberland 
scored twice while singles were netted by Ketchum, Tim- 
mins,. Mills and Trowsdale. Milroy and Shearson were best 
for the visitors. 

A 5-2 victory over U.T.S. gave the Trinity team their 
third straight victory. T.C.S. was in complete command 
throughout the game, scoring four times before the visitors 
scored their first. Both Timmins and Budge scored twice, 
while Watson put in the fifth. The game was fast and clean 
with end-to-end rushes making verj' exciting hockey. Whyte 
and Lawden were best for the losers. 

For the first time in the history of the school, T.C.S. 
had the pleasure of playing host to a team from Hillfield 
School, Hamilton. The Littlesiders proved to be superior 
and they came up with a very one-sided 7-2 score. Led by 
Timmins and Ketchum, each with two goals. Trinity jumped 
into an early lead and remained there until the final whistle. 
Watson, Marpole and Trowsdale each scored once while 
Noes and Weaver both tallied for Hillfield. 

In the return game with U.C.C, Trinity again emerged 
victorious, this time by a 5-3 score. The game was very 
closely contested, with T.C.S. scoring first and U.C.C. gamely 
retaliating to tie up the score. However, T.C.S. superiority 
was evident in the final period when they scored twice, while 
preventing the Blue and White from having any dangerous 


shots on the Trinity goal. T.C.S. marksmen were Watson 
with two goals, Marpole, Trowsdale and Ketchum. 

The following represented T.C.S. in the above games: 
Mills, Scott, Montemurro, Anstis, Cumberland, Budge, 
Ketchum, Marpole, Trowsdale, Richardson, Boucher, Over- 
holt, Timmins, Burns M., Dalgleish, and Watson. 




T.C.S. VH. RIDUEY COLLEGE, February 2, 1952, at St. Catharines: 

Lx)st 68-45' 

Trinity made one of its infrequent trips to St. Cath- 
arines to be sadly trounced by a polished Ridley team. For 
the first half T.C.S. held its own nicely, with Hugh Walker 
scoring on well-aimed shots and Phil Muntz effectively 
checking the Ridley attack. In the next half Ridley gained 
a definite edge, and by three -quarter time had pulled away 
from Trinity by 46-30. After that T.C.S. tried desperately, 
but Ridley was just as determined, and when the final whistle 
blew, the score stood at 68-45 for Ridley. In general, both 
teams were playing good basketball, but Ridley were more 
accurate shots and altogether had a smoother working team. 

Bill Thomas, Hugh Walker, and Tim Ryley did very 
well for the losing squad, while Chaplin and Fosbrook star- 
red for Ridley. 

T.C.S. — Cowan 6, Goodman 1, Houston 3, Mowry 1, Muntz 6 (Co- 
Capt.), Tim Ryley 3, John Ryley, Thomas 9 (Co-Capt.). Walker 16. 


T.C.S. vs. U.T.S., at T.CJ5., January 16: Lost 29-27 

T.C.S. once more went down to defeat by the narrow 
margin of two points in another exciting game. The first 
quarter wfis a rough one, and after a warning from the 
referee both teams settled down to a good game. After 
trailing 4-3 at the end of the first quarter, the School team 
forged ahead in the second quarter on some very fine shots 
by Walker, who was ably helped by the rest of the team. 
On the strength of their shooting, T.C.S. found themselves 
in the lead at the end of the half, 16-7. U.T.S. settled down 
in the third quarter as a result of an excellent passing 
attack combined with splendid defensive work, and trailed 
T.C.S. by only three points at the end of the quarter. In the 
last quarter the School was held to five points and the score 
was tied with just twenty seconds remaining. Then Floyd 
of U.T.S. scored the winning basket when he streaked in 
under the T.C.S. hoop. The score was 29-27 

T.C.S. — Walker 13, Houston 6, Thomas 4, Muntz 3, Board 1, Gor- 
don, Ryley i, Cowan, Mowry. 

T.C.S. vs. PORT HOPE at T.C.S., Jannary 12, 1952: Lost 47-46 

The School was treated to a very exciting game between 
the Port Hope Seniors and the T.C.S. first team, in the sec- 
ond contest between these two clubs. The game opened very 
slowly, both teams playing cautiously, and by the end of 
the first quarter Port Hope was leading 10-6. The game then 
opened up, and both teams displayed a fine hard game of 
basketball with many fine plays. Although the score was 
only 19-16 in favour of Port Hope at the end of the half, it 
was due to the fine defensive work of each team, and was 
not a reflection on either team's shooting. T.C.S. went into 
the lead after the third quarter 30-27, on the strength of 
shots by Hugh Walker. The fourth quarter was a very tense 
one, with both teams battling fairly evenly. With the School 
leading 38-36 and a few seconds remaining, Ross of Port 
Hope scored the equalizer, and the game went into overtime. 
Within three minutes of overtime Port Hope scored nine, 


and the School team seven. The First team is to be com- 
mended on a well-played game. 

T.C.S. — Walker 16, Houston 15, Muntz 6, Board 5, Oowan 2, 
Thomas 1, Ryley i, Ryley ii. Gordon, Mowry. 

T.C.S. vs. PICKERING COLLEGE at Port Hope, Febraar> 20, 1952: 

Lost 54-47 

This was rather a disappointing game to lose as T.C.S. 
employed a different type of game for the first time. Two 
complete lines were interchanged for the first time and the 
arrangement seemed very satisfactory. The second line of 
Cowan, Ryley i, Colbourne i. Colbourne ii, and Mowry clicked 
exceptionally well, while the first line was resting. Unfor- 
fortunately, the shooting was off, and this inability to score 
resulted in the T.C.S. loss. Pickering led 15-6 at the end of 
the first quarter, and the score was 28-16 at the end of the 
half. With the score 43-30 at the end of the thii'd quarter, 
the T.C.S. team scored 17 points in a fine display of scoring. 
Unfortunately, they failed to check their opp)onents success- 
fully and Pickering won the game 54-47. 

T.C.S. — Houston 17, W^alker 14, Thomas 6, Cowan 6, Ryley i 2, 
Colbourne i 1, Colbourne ii 1. Ryley ii, Muntz, Board, Mowry. 


T.C.S. vs. SJK^C at Aurora, January 26, 1952: Lost 76-41 

Although the School team lost by 35 points, this margin 
of victory by the S.A.C. team does not indicate the com- 
parative closeness of the game. Walker played exceptionally 
well in the first half, scoring twelve points on the strength 
of his fine hook shots. At the end of the first quarter S.A.C. 
was leading 19-12 and they increased their lead to 34-25 at 
the end of the half. T.C.S. seemed to tire in the second half, 
as they lacked replacements for Houston, Thomas, Walker, 
Muntz and Board. With superior shooting and passing plays 
and the advantage in height, S.A.C. scored ten baskets in 
the third quarter to lead 54-34. The game ended 76-41 in 
favour of S.A.C. as the School team faded completely in 
the last quarter, scoring a mere three baskets. T.C.S. has 


been shooting an excellent game in these early season games, 
but a lack of height and reach, combined with the fact that 
they have no second string, tends to place them at a definite 

T.C.S. — Walker 21, Houston 6, Thomas 6, Ryley i 4, Muntz 4, 
Ryley ii, Cowan, Board, Mowry, 

T.C.S. vs. AJLPHA DEI.TA PHI, at Port Hope, Janaary 19, 1952: 

Lost 39-37 

For the third time in succession T.C.S. once more lost 
by two points in a very dull game. Neither team played well 
due to the close checking used throughout the game. The 
Alpha Delts led 7-6 at the end of the first quarter and in- 
creased their lead to 23-10 at the end of the half. Paced by 
Walker, who sank ten baskets during the game, T.C.S. slowly 
cut down the A.D. lead by a strong passing attack, and the 
score at the end of the third quarter read 31-24 in favour 
of the visitors. The Alpha Delts faltered in the fourth quar- 
ter and T.C.S. slowly cut down their lead. With one minute 
left, T.C.S. was within two points of tying the score, but 
the Alpha Delts froze the ball, and the game ended with the 
score 39-37. 

T.C.S. — Walker 20, Houston 6, Thomas 2, Ryley i 2, Ryley li, 
Muntz, Cowan, Board, Mowry. 

T.C.S. vs. ZETA PSI FRATERNITY, at T.C.S., Februajry 23, 1962: 

Won 41-34 

Pla3ang their second game in one afternoon the Trinity 
Seniors and Juniors put together their remaining energy and 
joined forces to defeat the Zeta Psi Fraternity 41-34. The 
Zetas brought down a very good team which played excel- 
lent basketball. They led the School from the beginning of 
the game until the three-quarter mark, only to have their 
lead wiped out by a determined fourth-quarter drive by the 
Senior first string. The rally was successful and the score 
ended with Trinity in front 41-34. 


T.C.S. vs. PORT HOPE HIGH, at T.C.S,, February 23, 1952: Won 46-44 

The third meeting between the two schools again pro- 
duced an exciting contest and some very good basketball. 
Both teams showed great speed and both combined their 
speed with smooth plays to produce some of the best basket- 
ball played here this year. The game was very close all the 
way, with the half-time score reading 18-16 in favour of 
Trinity. In the third quarter the T.C.S. squad took an eight- 
point lead on several quick baskets by Walker, Ryley and 
Thomas. However, this lead dwindled to two points with 
but two minutes left as Port Hope surged up in a fourth- 
quarter rally. Both teams played cautiously for the last 
two nainutes waiting for a chance to get the winning basket. 
Port Hope tied the score at 44-all with a minute remaining, 
but Walker sank the winning points for T.C.S. seconds later 
on a deadly hook shot. Trinity then managed to hold the ball 
until the final whistle and preserve their lead. 

T.C.S. — Walker i 24, Ryley i 8, Tliomas 8, Board 4. Muntz 2, 
Mowry, Ryley ii, Colbourne i, Colbourae ii, Adanison, Cowan. 

T.C.S. vs. OAKWOOD COLLEGIATE, at T.C.S., February 9, 1952: 

Won 44-29 

On Saturday, February 9, the Trinity Seniors were 
challenged to a game by the basketball players on the Oak- 
wood Swimming team. T.C.S. accepted the challenge and 
after a very good fight managed to defeat the Oakwood boys 
by a score of 44-29. The game was not taken too seriously 
and as a resullt there were fewer fouls and both teams en- 
joyed the game. Special mention should go to the six Oak- 
wood players who played a very good game even though 
they had just finished a strenuous swimming meet, and 
especially Myers, who was high-scorer for the visitors. 

T.C.S. — Ryley i 22, Walker i 7, Thomas 6, Muntz 5, Cowan 2, 
Board 2, Ryley ii, Mowry. 

T.C.S. vs. U.C.C, at U.C.C, February 12, 1952: Lost 63-SS 

On Tuesday, Feb. 12, Trinity made a trip to Toronto 
to meet U.C.C. in their first league game away from home. 


The game was very fast and both teams scored often as a 
result of fast-breaking plays. In the first quarter T.C.S. 
found difficulty in making their plays work on the big U.C.C. 
floor and Upper Canada ran up an 18-5 lead. T.C.S. fared a 
little better in the second quarter and the half-time score 
read 26-18 for U.C.C. Trinity came back strongly in the 
third quarter and cut the Upper Canada lead to four points. 
However, in the fourth quarter the pace finally caught up 
with the School and a well-conditioned Upper Canada team 
rolled on to win 63-33. 

T.C.S. — Houston 4, Walker i 14, Thomas 5, Board 4, Muntz 6, 

Ryley i, Cowan. 


The first game of the season for the Juniors was played 
on Jan. 26 against St. Andrew's at Port Hope. Trinity seemed 
a little disorganized for the first quarter with the result 
that the Saints jumped to an early lead, but as the game 
progressed T.C.S. shooting improved and the game speeded 
up considerably. However, despite the fine playing of Don 
and Doug Colbourne, the Trinity team was unable to catch 
up and the final score read 49-25 for the Saints. 

The Juniors' next game was played at home against 
U.T.S. on Feb. 6. As in their first game, T.C.S. got off to a 
poor start and found themselves trailing by several baskets 
at quarter time. In the second quarter and second half they 
began to click and led by Walker ii they put on a sustained 
attack. However, they were unable to keep U.T.S. from 
scoring and the final score read 27-55 in favour of the 

The Juniors took the floor on February 9 a greatly 
improved team and as a result they won a narrow 38-37 
victory over a fighting Cosburn Jr. High team. The game 
was very fast and very exciting throughout and it was any- 
body's game right up to the final whistle. Every member 
of both teams played very well and Mowry and Walker ii of 
T.C.S. deserve special mention for their fine performance. 


T.C.S. visited Toronto for a game with Upper Canada 
on February 12 and emerged victorious by a score of 41-30. 
In this game Trinity showed fine teamwork and excellent 
passing. Doug Colbourne was the oustanding player on the 
T.C.S. team. Unfortunately, the Upper Canada team did 
not appear at its best, although their shooting was more 
accurate than that of T.C.S. 

On February 20 the Juniors played Pickering at Port 
Hope and emerged from a hard-fought game with a 48-33 
victory. The T.C.S. team functioned very smoothly and held 
control of the ball for most of the game. At half time they 
had a 14-point lead which Pickering was unable to overcome 
despite a fourth-quarter rally. Walker ii was the star of the 
game as he scored 26 points for T.C.S. 

The Juniors met Port Hope Juniors on February 23. 
The School jumped to an early first-quarter lead, but in the 
second quarter they became a little careless in their ball 
handling and as a result they left the floor at the half with 
a very slim 4-point lead. In the second half Trinity im- 
proved and Doug Colbourne and Walker ii went on a scoring 
spree which finally won the game for Trinity. The final score 
read 46-21. 

The Junior Une-up: Adamson, Don Colbourne. Doug 
Colbourne, Cran, Day i, Goodman, Luxton ii, MacKinnon, 
Mowry, Walker ii, Wevill, Young. 


Annual In\itation Squash Toumam«it 

January 19 and 20, 1952 

This year, the Twelfth Annual T.C.S. Invitation Squash 
Racquets Tournament produced some of the most brilliant 
squash ever seen on T.C.S. courts. The ultimate winner was 
Ernie Howard, an Old Boy, and Canada's top-ranking squash 
player, who won the tournament last year. To win, he had 
to defeat the present American Intercollegiate champion, 
Henry Foster, from the University of Michigan. This was 


no easy task, for although he took the first and third games 
handily, Foster rallied in a spectacular fashion to tie the 
score. At the beginning of the fifth game, Foster took a 
quick 7-1 lead; however, Howard, using drop and corner 
shots with precision, came from behind and won 14 out of 
the following 17 points to win the match in a fashion that 
will probably never be witnessed here again. 

The winner of the Consolation Tournament was Jim 
Bidden, who defeated Bill Noyes, also a previous Tourna- 
ment champion, in a well-played match. The Tournament 
was the most successful of its history and the School is 
indebted to Mr. Landry for spending so much time in organ- 
izing such a fine tournament.

We have been very fortunate, this year, to have had a 
perfect winter for skiing. There has been much enthusiasm 
for skiing at T.C.S. and no slight thaw has prevented a bus 
load of hopefuls from making a trip out to the Northumber- 
land Ski Club every Sunday. Among those who have been 
seen doing parallel ( ?) turns down the Northumberland bills

Our thanks are due to Mr. David Ford who was kind 
enough to bring up his shdes taken last summer on his trip 
to Ungava Bay on the Government ship "C. D. Howe". Mr. 
Ford, who was bom and brought up in this area, gave us 
a very interesting talk on how life is carried on in this part 
of our country. 

The Junior School has recently acquired a new projector 
for showing slides and film strips. This will be of great 
value as a teaching medium and at the present time the 
Masters seem to be getting as much kick out of it as the 

There has been a very good turnout for voluntary Gym 
this year and rumour has it that the Junior School 
should be able to turn out a strong gym team against St. 
Andrew's this year. We have also heard through the grape- 
vine that one of the boys turning out has invented a new 
exercise, a "Giant swing on the pommel horse". This we 
hope to see! 


Spring, to me, means the season of the year in which 
the colourful things in life return in all their glory after 
being asleep in the cold winter months. 

The countryside gradually comes back to life in the 
spring months. The streams, having been calmed with the 
blanket of winter, are once more rushing on their winding 
way. Pussy willows begin to push their soft white heads 
through the brown buds, trying to reach the clean, cool air. 
The flowers fight their way up through the hardened earth 
attempting to get closer to the warm sun rays. Green foliage 
again appears clinging to the surrounding trees. Birds 
slowly return to their warm summer home, singing merrily 
as they fly about looking for a suitable spot on which to 
build a nest. Squirrels and chipmunks race happily back 
and forth from their homes searching for food. All animal 
life is playing merrily as though it had no worldly cares. 


The whole atmosphere is enjoyable as the brilliant sun 
brings back once more the wonderful feeling of warmth and 
renewed strength, giving us a pleasant glimpse of the 
summer months to come.

Cuernavaca lies in an ideal warm, sunny plain south- 
west of Mexico City, It is a welcome sight to the weary 
driver who has just traversed the high range of mountains 
on a weaving, dizzy highway. 

Tourists have flooded into Cuernavaca in endless waves 
and what once used to be a quiet, farming town has now 
turned into a booming, noisy city dependent on its great 
trade, "tourism." Consequently, the city has been greatly 
modernized and large hotels and theatres have been built. 
In addition to this, the Mexican labourer is exerting all his 
power by making things that might attract the tourist 

Cuernavaca is also a place of relaxation for the Mexican 
business man and his family. As it is only a short distance 
from Mexico City, it can be easily reached; every week-end, 
therefore, the highways are crowded by scores of cars and 
busses bringing holidayers. They arrive constantly at their 
respective villas or ranch houses, which are usually red- 
topped, whitewashed, and with many colourful vines. It is 
a deUghtful place for the children. 

Like all Mexican towns, villages and cities, Cuernavaca 
has a Plaza. This one lies on the top of a flat hill and is 
decked with large, leafy trees. It is the meeting place for 
all the peasants and workers who come to relax and talk. 
Every Sunday a band plays and people from the surrounding 
countryside come to celebrate. The Plaza is surrounded by 
picturesque silver and souvenir stands which do a very 
good business. 

The Hernan Cortez Palace is one of the magnificent 
buildings on the Plaza. It was at one time the residence of 


the Spanish conqueror and has now been turned into a 
Museum. The walls inside are covered with numerous 
frescos by a well-known Mexican artist. Close by the build- 
ing stands the stone monument of one of the Mexican heroes 
in the war for independence. Another building is the "Mark" 
Hotel. It is constantly filled by tourists. The hotel is built 
around a large patio and has a magnificent porch over- 
looking the Plaza. 

Cuernavaca, then, is another of Mexico's many holiday 
spots. However, it is not an ordinary one, for its claim to 
fame as a resort was made in the Sixteenth Century by 
Hernan Cortez and has been kept ever since.

It was one of those lazy, hot, summer afternoons when 
a craved breeze does not exist among the spruce trees, and 
when one longs for a dip in a bubbling stream that trickles 
down the side of the mountain to the calm lake below. 

It was just such a day as I strode along the mountain 
path leading toward our summer lodge. I had been out bird- 
watching and was returning when just ahead of me on an 
old twisted pine perched an enormous Bald Eagle. He was 
a gorgeous creature, not that his features were particu- 
larly handsome, but the black feathers on his massive wings 
and body and a monarch's white head turned towards the 
west, made him look like a king gazing over his wide 

Taking no notice of me, he lifted his great wings softly 
into the air and flew silently downward to the lake. He 
circled lazily a few yards above it, and sighting an unaware 
trout, he swooped down upon it. With a large splash that 
sent sparkling ripples across the azure lake, he clutched it 
in his talons and soared up to the other side like a plane 
taking off from a runway. 

I lost sight of him in the shadow of the mountains but 
saw him again, only as a dot, in the glow of the ever-growing 


sunset, still carrying the trout with him, I watched him as 
he flew swiftly to his nest which lay somewhere on the side 
of one of the great snowcapped mountains.

I have visited many countries and eaten a variety of 
national dishes. I have eaten Dutch cheese, French hors 
d'oeuvres and hot Mexican food. I have tasted European 
and Latin cuisines and I can say that the latter is by far 
ray favourite. 

In Mexico one may visit any peasant family and be 
fed with "tortillas", beans and green peppers. Every meal 
is composed of "tortillas", which are thin corncakes. They 
are rolled and filled with meat and chili sauce. Another dish 
is "tamales". These are oval-shaped corncakes filled with 
a very hot, red sauce and meat. They are served on plates 
with beans and rice. 

When visiting a ranch one is surprised to see a fried 
egg on a "tortilla" with sauce on it. This is served for break- 
fast and is called "rancher's eggs". The chili sauce is also 
employed with "tacos", which are hardened "tortillas" con- 
taining chicken. 

Many American tourists who have come to Mexico have 
gone to high-class restaurants and ordered the hottest of 
foods. When served they seem hot, but are nothing com- 
pared to the ordinary peasant food. Other tourists, how- 
ever, have eaten the true delicacies and have experienced 
parched throats, runny noses and tears. 

I once remember seeing an American drinking a spoon- 
ful of Tabasco sauce, which he thought was ordinary 
ketchup. He soon found out how wrong he was and never 
touched hot food again. One habit the tourists have is to 
drink glass after glass of water to cool themselves after a 
hot meal. This does not help at all ; bread is the best remedy. 

All Mexican food, however, is not hot. Well-prepared 
fish plates do not always have hot sauce. There are cooling 


drinks and various types of sweets. Cajeta, for example, is 
a simple mixture of goat's milk and sugar. It is usually put 
on sandwiches, but some people who are extremely fond 
of it eat it by the spoonful. 

As you can see, I am very fond of hot food and until 
finding something that appeals more to my palate, I shall 
call it my favourite food.

From the granaries of Fort William and the loading 
docks of Duluth; from Michipicoton Harbour on the north 
shore through the locks to the furthermost points of Geor- 
gian Bay; to Lake Erie and to Chicago in Lake Michigan; 
these fraU-looking craft nose their way into all the ports 
along the shores of the Great Lakes. Their cargo may con- 
sist solely of grain or iron or other raw materials for the 
great industrial areas of the United States. 

Their season beginning in late March may run through 
until mid-December and they have been known to go through 
the locks in the latter days of January. They play a great 
part in Canada's daily life, and without them it would be 
hard to get the produce of the West to the great markets 
of the East. The Lake Freighters are the life lines of our

One day last summer, I thought I might take a walk 
around our Georgian Bay island. I took my rifle in case I 
saw any rabbits or crows. After walking for almost two 
hours and seeing nothing in the way of game, I used up my 
fifteen rounds of ammunition shooting at trees. I passed 
the tree platform that is located near the centre of the 
island as I wandered homeward and decided to climb up to 
it for the first time since the year before. This platform was 


built by my father when he was a boy, and since it is pro- 
tected by the supporting trees, it is still as strong today as 
it was twenty years ago. 

I climbed up the precarious ladder, brushed away the 
pine needles, and sat down. I could see the cool water lap- 
ping gently on the shore, and the monotonous sound made 
me think of sleep. Next minute I was dead to the world. 

I woke up with a start. I instantly realized where I 
was and seeing that the sun was quite near the horizon, I 
decided to go home. But looking over the edge, I caught 
sight of a strange procession. A family of partridge was 
walking through the juniper below me. They were walking 
in a jumbled formation, picking berries off the bushes as 
they walked. The young ones were about a month old; they 
looked quite comical learning to walk. 

Suddenly the father, leading the procession, halted. The 
rest followed suit, then the mother uttered a sharp screech 
at which the young scurried into the bushes and hid among 
the roots. 

No sooner had the children and the mother got safely 
hidden, than the bushes parted and a small fox, the first 
one I had ever seen, stepped out with bared fangs and 
pounced on the father partridge. Before I completely real- 
ized what was happening, the fox was upon the poor bird 
and had broken its neck. 

How I longed for a shot at the fox! I rolled over on 
my side to see if I had one more cartridge left in my pocket. 
In doing so, I made a noise that the fox heard and, looking 
up, he regarded me for a few seconds before he wheeled 
silently and loped off into the underbrush. 

I climbed down from the platform and started looking 
for the mother and baby birds, but they had completely dis- 
appeared. The poor bird that the fox had killed was lying 
on the path, so I picked him up and threw him into some 
bushes. Then I departed for home, wondering if I would 
ever get another chance to see the fox.

Co-Captains of Hockey: W. A. H. Hyland, A. R. Wiimett. 

This year's hockey squad has shown steady improve- 
metn since the season began. The three forward lines are 
very well balanced and there is no "weak line". Each trio 
has shown that it is capable of giving a good account of 

The defence lacked experience at the beginning, but has 
since shown great steadiness in checking and covering their 
opponents. Our goalie has turned in some very good games. 

Our last game of the season against Ridley has stUl 
to be played and an account will appear in the next issue. The 
team picture will also appear in the next issue as it was not 
possible to have it taken in time for this number's deadline. 


The first game of the season was played at Lakefield 
on January 29th. The teams were very evenly matched, al- 
though Lakefield had a slight edge throughout most of the 
game and were leading 3-2 until a few minutes before the 
end of the game when the School scored the tying goal. 
Final score: 3-3. 

On Saturday, February 9th, the School played U.C.C. 
in Toronto and scored a 4-0 victory. The U.C.C. team were 
younger and smaller and the issue was never in doubt. 

St. Andrew's Macdonald House team visited T.C.S. on 
February 16th and showed great strength to defeat the 
School 7-0. It was the Saints' game all the way and they 
are to be congratulated on a very fast and skillful team — 
one of the best "Mac" House has ever turned out. 

Due to the cancellation of our game with Hillfield, the 
Junior School took on the Senior School's Littleside team on 
February 22nd. This produced some very good hockey on 
both sides, but the Junior School was unable to cope with 
so many stronger and older players and lost the game 7-0. 

The School played its best hockey of the season when 
Lakefield paid us a return visit on February 29th, The issue 
was never in doubt and the final score was T.C.S. 7, Lake-

This is the third year that the Snipe Hockey League 
has functioned and it has had its most successful season 
up to date. All the boys in the School who are not on the 
First Squad play in this League, and each of the five teams 
has played twenty-four League games during the season. 
The standard of hockey played by the first lines of these 
teams is well above the standard of the School teams we 
used to turn out before the advent of the Peter Campbell 
Memorial Rink. 

With the exception of the "Alcatraz All-Stars" cap- 
tained by Borden, who set a hot pace from the start, the 
teams were very evenly matched. The final results are 
listed below. 

1. Alcatraz All-Stars (Captain Borden) 40 points

THE REV. C. R. SPENCER ('94-'02) 

Clarence Reginald Spencer entered T.C.S. in January, 
1894, and left in 1902. His father was the Rector of Thorold 
at the time and he came from a very large family. At T.C.S. 
he came to be known as "Mr. Fixit" principally because he 
could always open a trunk for a boy if he had left the keys 
at home; in many other ways, too, he showed his ingenuity. 

From T.C.S. he went on to Trinity College to study 
Divinity. His first charge was the mission of Essonville, 
near Wilberforce, and Mr. Spencer looked after four 
churches, often trudging miles through the deepest snow. 
Later he went on to Young's Point and Millbrook. In 1915, 
while Rector of Millbrook, he enlisted in the Midland Regi- 
ment and went overseas as an infantry captain. When his 
O.C. discovered that he was married with children he re- 
quired him to transfer to the Chaplain Corps. 

In January, 1918, he returned to Millbrook. After some 
years he became Rector of Shanty Bay and then of Bow- 
manville. During the Second World War he was Chaplain 
of the internment camp at Bowmanville and reached the 
rank of Major. He then went to Campbellf ord ; some months 
ago he retired to live in Port Hope and help at St. John's 
Church, In Masonry Canon Spencer became a Scottish 
Riter and Grand Chaplain. 

Canon Spencer's life was one of complete sacrifice for 
an ideal ; his great work, often under very trying conditions, 
was carried on with true Christian faith and continual 
cheerfulness; the love of his God and of his fellow men 
filled his heart always. 


He will be widely and deeply missed and our heartfelt 
sympathy goes out to his wife and family. Truly, Canon 
Spencer earned the undying reward, "Well done, thou good 
and faithful servant." 


Mr. Ogle came to T.C.S. in 1923 and, except for an 
interval of a year or so when he taught at the R.M.C., re- 
mained until 1934. During his time at Port Hope he made 
a great contribution to the life of the School and to the boys 
and masters. 

He was one who fitted naturally into the schoolmaster's 
niche. In the classroom, he was an excellent and painstaking 
teacher; at sports, he held his own with the best (we were 
all much impressed with the fact that he had played soccer 
with Scotland's top-notch Queen's Park and his fleetness of 
foot and his knowledge of the game and his prowess at it 
were plain to see) . In the Common Room he was a cheerful 
companion and a real friend. A typical Scot, he threw him- 
self wholeheartedly into all that he did and his healthy, 
happy enthusiasm was good to see. Scotty's was a keen and 
rather boyish disposition and one of the greatest impressions 
he gave was that of a tremendous worker. He liked people 
and people liked him and with the boys he was popular as 
well as respected and admired. 

He was a sailor — how he loved his boats — and he could 
build them as well as sail them. To see him as skipper of 
his craft on the Lake of Two Mountains, and on deeper and 
stormier waters, was to see him in his element. 

He was a young wireless operator during the war of 
1914, and it was the most natural thing in the world that 
he should turn to the Navy when trouble came again. So it 
was not long before he found himself in a responsible position 
at Royal Roads training officer material and giving all that 
he had to the task in hand. 

Scotty was blessed in the companionship and help of 
his wife and it was always a joy to see them and their 


children at home where enthusiasm and happiness seemed 
to reign. 

We have heard with regret of his death and our hearts 
go out in sympathy to those most near and dear to him and 
we are grateful for the rich memories of his full and useful

For the second year in a row, fathers with boys at the 
School were invited to the Annual Meeting. The following 
attended: Herbert S. Bogert, L. G. Crawford, Donald A. 
Maclnnes, H. F. Seymour. Other fathers present included 
J. M. Cape, J. P. Cundill, and H. G. Marpole, all Old Boys of 
the School. 

C. A. Q. Bovey acted as Chairman, and R. P. Jellett 
said Grace. 

Opening Remarks: Following dinner, the meeting was 
declared open for business. The President extended a word 
of welcome to the Governors, Old Boys, and fathers, and 
particularly to the Headmaster, Mr. Ketchum. He then ex- 
pressed the gratitude of all those assembled to the organ- 
izing committee, which consisted of Charles Laing, Geoff 
Lehman, Bruce Little, Harry Marpole, Ross Newman, 
Rodney Patch, Struan Robertson, Bruce Russel, and Nigel 

The President then asked the meeting to stand and 
drink a toast to Robert Jellett in recognition of his fifty 
years of devoted service to the School as a member of the 
Board of Governors. 

Minutes of the Last Annual Meeting: It was moved, sec- 
onded, and unanimously carried that the minutes of the 
last Annual Meeting be taken as read and approved. 


Financial Statement: The statement of cash receipts 
and disbursements for 1951 having been circulated before 
the meeting, the financial report was brief and to-the-point. 
It showed that revenues were not keeping pace with ex- 
penditures due to an alarming decrease in the number of 
Old Boys paj'ing their Annual Dues. 

Constitutional Change: It was moved, seconded, and 
unanimously carried that the first paragraph of Section No. 
8 of the Montreal Branch Constitution be amended to read 
as follows: 

"An Executive Committee of nine shall be elected from 
amongst the members of the Branch. At each Annual Meet- 
ing, three members shall be elected to the Executive Com- 
mittee to hold office for three years." 

Before this change was made, there were ten on the 
Committee, five being elected annually to hold office for 
two years. 

Election of Executive: It was moved and seconded that 
the following be nominated as candidates for the Executive 
Committee of the Montreal Branch: 

To hold office for one year: H. G. Marpole, H. J. R. 
Newman, C. A. Q. Bovey. 

To hold office for two years: R. A. Patch, B. S. Russel, 
B. W. Little. 

To hold office for three years: P. J. LeBrooy, R. C. 
Paterson, N. F. Thompson. 

There being no further nominations, the foregoing 
were elected unanimously. 

The President then extended his personal thanks to the 
outgoing members of the Executive, Dudley Dawson and 
Struan Robertson, both of whom had served for a period 
of four years. 

Sustaining Fund Campaign: Dudley Dawson, Vice- 
President of the Branch, reported in detail on progress made 
to date on the sustaining fund campaign, soon to be launched 
in Montreal. 

The Headmaster, Mr. Ketchum, was introduced by 
Donald Byers, Old Boys' representative to the Board of 


The Headmaster gave his traditional report on School 
activities. Although highlighted with the story of another 
championship football season, his account dwelt at length 
with achievements in fields other than athletic, notably the 
School's present high academic standing. Closing on a 
serious note, Mr. Ketchum described the many reasons for 
the forthcoming financial campaign and show how necessary 
it was to the future of T.C.S. 

Mr. Jellett's address of thanks was the high point of 
the evening. His keen humour and interesting reminiscences 
were greatly appreciated by all those present and provided 
a fitting end to a most enjoyable meeting. 

Adjournment: There followed an informal ten-minute 
question period in which several Old Boys participated. The 
meeting adjourned at 9.45 p.m. 

Following the meeting, the Executive Committee chose 
the following officers. President: C. A. Q. Bovey; Vice- 
President, Bruce S. Russel ; Secretary - Treasurer (to be 
elected). Committee members (as above): Harry B. Mar- 
pole, H. J. Ross Newman, Rodney A. Patch, Bruce W. Little, 
Paul J. LeBrooy, Robert C. Paterson, Nigel F, Thompson. 


The annual dinner of the Toronto Branch, Old Boys' 
Association, was held in Toronto on Monday, February 18th, 
1952, in the Roof Gardens of the Royal York Hotel. There 
was a particularly good turnout for this important annual 
event, there being approximately 200 at the gathering. The 
decorations under the direction of Mr. John dePencier were 
very well done this year. 

The assembled Old Boys were particularly honoured in 
being addressed by the Chief of the General Staff, Lieut.- 
General G. G. Simonds, C.B., C.B.E., D.S.O., CD. General 
SLmonds spoke "off the record" to the Old Boys about affairs 
in Korea, from where he had just recently returned, and 
about his future plans for officer material in the Canadian 


Army. The extreme interest was evident from the rapt 
attention with which the many Old Boys listened to his 
remarks. The Headmaster reviewed activities at the School 
and gave a most impressive picture of the past year's 
achievements at the School, noting particularly that two 
T.C.S. boj's have won Ontario and Quebec Rhodes Scholar- 
ships this year — Ronald Watts and Charles Taylor, respec- 
tively. He also referred to plans which were under way to 
establish a sustaining fund. In the absence of Bishop Reni- 
son, Mr. R. C. H. Cassels proposed the toast to the School. 
Mr. Ian Cumberland thanked the guest of honour, General 
Simonds, for making available to us some portion of his very 
busy and valuable time and indicated how much the Old 
Boys appreciated the fact that he had come from Ottawa 
especialy to speak to us. 

The head table guests included the following: Lieut- 
GJeneral Simonds, P. C. Osier, Chairman and President of the 
Toronto Branch ; I. Cumberland, Brig. J. G. Spragge, R. C. H. 
Cassels, Lt.-Col. Osborne, Provost Seeley, Rev. F. H. Cos-

Time. At first glance this is a simple word, an abstract 
substance, divided into days and hours; at second glance, 
an omnipotent word, the dictator of our modern world. It 
seems to have an especially strong tenure to its rule here 
at School, and so an investigation of its power may be in- 
teresting, or even disheartening. 

The annoying fact is, one never seems to have the 
proper amount of time for any set job. We return to School 
in September, with nine months until June — too much time. 
Recently one found exams approaching at break-neck speed 
— too little time; and yet that same day this imaginary 
person had three hours detention to work off — too much 
time. Therefore, if we are to make time work in our favour, 


we have to be able to allot ourselves enough time for all 
the tasks we have to deal with. A boy who can do this 
has accomplished a great deal, and he is a very rare species 
of "homo sapiens" in his younger days. 

However, let us assume we have found a person who 
has been intelligent enough to dole out to himself various 
quantities of time for specific purposes. Then we watch 
to see how he uses this time. How many of us go off into 
dreamy trances at a desk when we're supposed to be study- 
ing? How many boys gave up a plan of studying in favour 
of a baseball game on a sunny afternoon this last month? 
It is a natural reaction to detest books in June, but when 
we succumb to the cry of freedom it definitely shows a lack 
of persistence and will-power. During the school year this 
tendency is checked by certain periods of time in which 
we have little choice in the way we spend them, but every 
year there is thrust upon each of us three months of holi- 
days in which we are the sole boss of our time, (excepting 
mothers!), and this is the real test of a person's ability to 
utilize it properly. 

Summer holidays are far too frequently associated with 
an alarming amount of wasted time, and they shouldn't be 
tied together in this manner. It is not suggested that a 
person who fails to race around until he is in a state of utter 
exhaustion is wasting time; but when a person looks back 
on a section of the past with a feeling of loss rather than 
achievement, he has wasted that time. A sure sign of 
wasted time in a holiday occurs when a person can look 
back and wish he had done this and that, but, "I never 
really found time." 

Therefore, perhaps it might be well for everyone to 
analyse his plans for the summer, and see if he will be 
wasting the time that is given to him. There are so few 
years in our life in which this great amount of free time 
is given to us, it would be a great shame to miss the oppor- 
tunities presented to us in our leisure months. 




On February 24, the Chaplain, Canon Lawrence, 
preached in the Memorial Chapel. The text of the sermon 
was "the service belonging unto them was that they should 
bear upon their shoulders." Canon Lawrence mentioned 
men who started life with a handicap and yet what seemed 
to be gross unfairness turned out to be a blessing. He told 
us of the Children of Israel who, following their escape from 
Egypt, made use of a portable church. To carry this around 
three groups of Levites were used. Moses gave to two of the 
groups wagons and oxen but to the third he gave none. So 
they were forced to carry on their shoulders parcels with 
unknown contents. "Many years have passed," said the 
Canon, "but still there remain certain duties which some of 
us can never be relieved of. The Hebrew prophets declared 
that the God of all the World shares the heartache and 
shame of the humblest of people. So we return to the dif- 
ficulties and burdens that we suppose must be our load in 
life. We can sense now the wisdom of the ancient saying 


"Count no man happy till the end has come." "In the end," 
said Canon Lawrence, "the third and less fortimate group 
of believers had gained something better than oxen and 


The first Lenten sermon to be preached in the new 
Memorial Chapel, on March 2, was by the Rev. Hugh Bed- 
ford-Jones, Rector of Cobourg, who spoke on the word "IF". 

In the third verse of the fourth chapter of the gospel 
according to Saint Matthew, we find the Devil tempting 
Christ with the words "If thou be the Son of God, command 
these stones to be made bread." 

The word "IF", as we find it here, is one of doubt. Its 
importance and protective powers in our daily life lead us 
to the conclusion that we are on common ground with Christ 
in one more respect; that of temptation. There are many 
kinds of temptation, it is true, but temptation is a universal 
fact. The Tempter is well aware of this and particularly of 
the importance of "IF". By using it he may lead us into 
temptation and sin, just as he led Adam and Eve to their 
great sin in the garden. Christ's answer to Satan must be 
our answer to temptation. 

"... Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every 
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God". 

His first temptation having failed, the Devil misquoted 
the 91st Psalm to lure Christ, prefacing it with the words, 
"If thou be the Son of God, Cast thyself down" (from the 
pinnacle). This "IF" is one of misleading suggestion. We 
must be wary of it as well as the one of doubt, and repeat 
His answer. "Thou shalt npt tempt the Lord thy God". 

A third time Christ was tempted, and now with the 
words, "If thou will fall down and worship me," Satan 
offered the glory of all the kingdoms of the earth in return 
for adoration. Again Christ's answer should be ours, "Get 
thee hence, Satan". Certainly the Tempter cannot give that 
which is God's creation. As for our praise and adoration, 


there is only one to whom we must render it — God. Big 
ideas, words and promises often mislead us. If we follow 
them into sin we may easily justify ourselves to ourselves 
by argument, but never will we be justified in God's sight. 
Therefore we must "watch and pray" lest we "enter into 

But "IF" also works the other way. If we pray, if we 
serve God and our fellow man, and if we are filled with the 
spirit of the Holy Ghost, we may overcome the Tempter 
with ease. Then, like Christ, we shall emerge from our 
temptations, strong and full of grace. 


On Sunday, March 9, the Reverend F. H. Cosgrave, 
former Provost of Trinity College, Toronto, spoke in Chapel. 
He based his address upon the tenth verse of the fourth 
chapter of the first epistle of Paul to Timothy, "We have 
our hope set upon the living God." 

"Hope," said Dr. Cosgrave, "according to St. Paul is one 
of the great Christian virtues and is ranked along with faith 
and charity. Sometimes we put our love upon an object 
which is imjustifiable in our Christian faith. When we do 
this we usually encounter bitter disappointments which tend 
to hinder our hope. If, however, we have our hope set upon 
the living God, these disappointments are few and our hope 
continues upon those things which God has prepared for 

"The worst disease of our modern civilization," said Dr. 
Cosgrave, "is not the tremendous mechanical and scientific 
advancement of our age turned to warfare, but the birth of 
false philosophies. Without the right philosophy, man falls 
into a state worse than economic collapse, worse than 
modern warfare, a state of moral bankruptcy. When we 
think of nothing but material gains and when we give no 
higher authority than to the state, there is no freedom and 
we are in that state of moral bankruptcy where men act in 
a diabolical way towards one another." 


The church of God alone is qualified and equipped to 
fight the war for freedom; the church upheld the fight 
against Hitler, who waged war against liberty. 

In the Roman Empire, in the Middle Ages, again and 
again throughout history, the church was the champion of 
liberty and today the church is the chief bulwark in the fight 
for freedom. Dr. Cosgrave said, in closing, that the Chris- 
tian religion and what it stands for is that upon which we 
set our hope when all other landmarks are submerged. 

Dr. Cosgrave, who has been visiting the School annually 
for many years, was on the Building Committee of the 
Memorial Chapel and was the author of the Page of Dedica- 
tion in the Book of Remembrance. 


On Sunday, March 16, the Reverend T. A. Nind of 
Port Hope addressed the School. His sermon discussed the 
parallel between the story of Joseph and the need today for 
good Christians. His text was the portion "His soul entered 
into the iron." This quotation refers to the story of Joseph, 
of the many-coloured coats, jealously regarded by his 
brothers; so much so that they sold him into captivity to a 
group of Ismaelites. He was taken to Egypt and there his 
true ability was revealed and he acquired power and im- 
portance. His plight was not so disheartening after all. 
When he was able to give a Christian translation to the 
dreams of the Pharaoh he became the adviser of this man 
whose coimsel was valued above all others. God's message 
to man is as strong as iron, his faith inflexible, and his power 
over man unbreakable. Thus if we enter into the iron we 
too will grow strong in God's ways. But we must not let 
hardness enter into our soul and thus succumb to the bad 
within us. "Do we need a 'captivity into Egypt' to realize 
our potential before god?" asked Mr. Nind. In closing he 
said that everyone must face God and prepare his soul, and 
like Joseph, be a disciple of God's ways. 



"Without me ye can do nothing" (St. John 15 : 5) was 
the text taken by the Rev. H. G. Watts in Chapel on 
March 23. 

After speaking of the "galaxy" of trophies at T.C.S., 
Mr. Watts went on to describe a cup which is carefully kept 
in a vault at Newcastle. It is fashioned of soft yellow gold 
and supported by four columns on a gem set base. A group 
of beautifully carved figures seated along a table represent 
da Vinci's interpretation of the Last Supper. This cup, be- 
longing not only to the School, but to all mankind is the 
chalice of Bishop Brent. 

Because Bishop Brent, like his chalice, belonged to all 
the world, we are given a clue to the great new fact of our 
era. It is not nuclear fission, television or jet propulsion. 
William Temple, whom Churchill called the scholar of our 
age, claimed that "it was the working of the spirit of God 
in the hearts of men and women of every communion, of 
every nation, of every race to bring into being a united and 
effectively witnessing world Christian fellowship." 

"The World Council of Churches is a part of this great 
fact," Mr. Watts said. "Men like Doctor John Smart, Social 
Service worker Kagawa, and Bishops Brent and Renison 
are serving to achieve the union of fellowship we so badly 

At a recent international meeting it was shown that one 
third of the world's population is living below a satisfactory 
standard. The thing that matters is not "just living" but 
living properly. "So much seems hopeless in the world to- 
day, but men, like Bishop Brent, who hold a vision before 
them, can do much to build up the hope in every human 

"It is no overstatement to say that all freedoms, liber- 
ties, privileges and blessings which our civilization enjoys 
today came to it through the dynamic force of Christianity, 
working through the hearts and minds of men and women 
who submitted to its influence. The greatest lesson of life 


has been learned when one has accepted the fact that what- 
ever his other activities, he can best aid the coming of the 
Kingdom of God by loyalty to the near duties which once 
seemed small — the maintenance of a fearless soul in the 
maze of common life, the steady cultivation of a living faith 
in a loving God who holds and controls the destiny of man, 
and the jealous safeguard of inner peace, which is the just 
heritage of a quiet conscience." 

In conclusion. Dr. Watts told of a party of Japanese 
fugitives who had escaped their foes to a remote spot on 
the island of Shikohu. In this spot they were safe, for on 
one side stood mountains and on the other a gorge separated 
them from the world. There they lived for generations, 
preserving their customs and language, until at last it dawn- 
ed on them that they could live in peace with humanity. A 
vine bridge was built to cross the gorge and connect them 
with humanity. 

"I am the vine, ye are the branches . . . without me ye 
can do nothing." 

"Our bridge with humanity is the Living Vine," said 
Dr. Watts. "Yet we must remember that without branches 
the vine may bear no fruit. It is our responsibility to see 
that we are strong branches of the Christian faith, bearing 
the fruits of a union of mankind." 


This year's Confirmation service was held on March 29. 
The Rt. Rev. G. N. Luxton, D.D., LL,D., Lord Bishop of 
Huron, gave the address. The twenty-five candidates pre- 
sented were: David Morley Arkell, Nicholas Traner Boyd, 
Frazer Kennedy Cassels, Ralph Alexander Chauvin, Jeremy 
Maple Coleman, Walter Bruce Connell, David Laurie Dun- 
lap, Robert Finlayson Eaton, Elliott Victor Fraenkel Jr., 
Michael Hugh Higgins, Stephen Van Egmond Irwin, Peter 
Charles Archibald Ewert Jennings, Arnold Dewey Massey, 
William Richard Porrit, Arthur Jonathan Price, David 
Miles Price, David Drummond Ross, Leslie Anthony Wendon 


Sams, Charles Jeremy Sams, John Brian Spence, Morgan 
John Tamplin, Rowland Brian Wingrave Tench, Bruce 
Gardner Wells, William Thomas Whitehead, Christopher 
John Yorath. 

The choir, led by Mr. Cohu, sang many special selec- 
tions for this service, such as the anthem "Surely the Lord 
Is In This Place," and the vesper, "God Be In My Head." 
After the Bishop had put the three questions to the candi- 
dates, he gave an inspiring address. He spoke chiefly to 
the candidates who had just been confirmed and told them 
that they were now considered adults in the Church of God. 
He expressed his wishes that each would keep the confirma- 
tion prayer, which was printed on his confirmation card, in 
the currency of his mind, and that he would be a prop, not 
a burden, to the church. 

"Defend me, O Lord, with thy heavenly grace that I 

may continue thine for ever, and daily increase in 

Thy Holy Spirit more and more, until I come unto 

Thy everlasting Kingdom. Amen." 

When he had read the prayer he mentioned four im- 
portant words in it. The first is "me" for God loves us in- 
dividually. It is individuals who bring joy to the Kingdom 
of God. The second is "continue." If we plan to live by the 
confirmation prayer it is important that we continue to do 
so. The third is "increase" and God will increase the rich- 
ness of our souls as we pray each day. We seldom think of 
the last word "everlasting" as it does not concern us while 
we are young. However, we will discover new meanings as 
we grow older. Death does not end all, but opens a new 
beginning and is the gateway to the everlasting kingdom. 

The Bishop then mentioned St. Paul's description of the 
spiritual life in Moffatt's translation: "the harvest of the 
Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Good Temper, Kindliness, Gener- 
osity, Fidelity, Gentleness, Self -Control." These are the 
qualities so badly needed in the world and boys from T.C.S. 
should give the lead to others. 

In conclusion, the Bishop made an eloquent plea for 
more workers in Christ's vineyard, more ordained ministers 
and he hoped there would never fail to be a supply of fit 
persons for the Ministry from T.C.S. 






The School was proud to learn on the 7th of May that 
Bishop Renison had been elected Metropolitan of Ontario, 
the senior Bishop in this Ecclesiastical Province. 

Archbishop Renison is our best-known and possibly best- 
loved Old Boy, and he takes his place with three or four 
other T.C.S. boys as being the most famous of all who have 
attended the School in eighty-seven years. He came to T.C.S. 
in 1886, "a raw, backwoods boy" as he used to say. His 
father was a missionary in the Nipigon, lately arrived from 
Tipperary, with a wife and family of four. Conditions were 
primitive in that far part of Ontario; there were no settle- 
ments, no schools and no comforts. The Bishop's mother 
died early in life but the father gave the children a sound 
foundation for their future education. Three sons came 
to the School and they all entered the Service of the 
Church. Fees at T.C.S. were then $267 a year and bursaries 
of $120 were offered to the sons of clergy. Bishop Renison 
progressed through the School and in his final year he was 
Head Boy and won the Wilson Exhibition. 

He went on to University College, University of To- 
ronto, where he took first class honours in the English 
Literature course and did graduate work for his M.A. He 
studied Theology at Wycliffe College and was ordained in 
1896 ; his first post was as Curate of the Church of the Mes- 
siah in Toronto. In 1898 he became a missionary at Moose 
Fort and Albany, being elected Archdeacon of Moosonee 


in 1907. In 1912 he was appointed Rector of the Church of 
the Ascension in Hamilton becoming Archdeacon of Hamil- 
ton in 1924. He was appointed Rector of Christ Church, 
Vancouver, in 1927, and in 1929 he became Dean of New 
Westminster. In 1931 he was elected Bishop of Athabaska, 
but he left that post in 1932 to become Rector of St. Paul's 
Church, Toronto, in succession to Canon Cody. 

In 1943 he was elected Bishop of Moosonee where he 
has done valiant, almost miraculous work, assisted by his 
wife, during these ten years, spreading the good news in 
this enormous area, a mission he began more than fifty 
years ago. 

During the first World War the Archbishop was a Chap- 
lain in the Army in France and Belgium and in the past war 
he was an honorary chaplain to the R.C.A.F. 

He has been given honorary degrees by three theological 

Every Wednesday for sixteen years an article on a 
religious theme has appeared in the Globe & Mail written by 
Archbishop Renison; it is read and deeply appreciated by 
many thousands. He has written "A Life of Bishop Sul- 
livan," "Canada and the War 1919," and his Wednesday 
morning articles have been published in two volumes. He 
speaks Cree and has written an Indian Cree Hymn Book. 

The Archbishop is one of the most widely read men and 
he remembers everything of importance he reads; history, 
poetry, literature in general are familiar fields and he loves 
to browse in them. 

As a painter of word pictures he is unexcelled ; one lives 
the experience with him and an indelible impression is made. 
But it is his humanity and humility which win many hearts 
for truly there never was one in our time who loved his 
fellow man, saint or sinner, high or low, white or brown, 
as does the Archbishop. When he passes by, the world smiles 
and life is more sweet; long may his familiar and beloved 
figure tread our paths. 



Professor George Edison, recently appointed Vice- 
Provost of Trinity College, presented three lectures con- 
cerning the values in life to members of the sixth form. He 
has visited us before and his talks have proved useful to 
many boys. This year he began his lectures on February 25. 

He began by telling us that when we reach the sixth 
form we are completing one stage of life and entering an- 
other. We ask ourselves what course we are going to take 
or what profession we are going to prepare for and we are 
concerned with this choice. The more practical question 
should concern what we are going to be spiritually. We 
must learn to know ourselves in order to be true to our- 

Professor Edison asked, "Is our real self different from 
its appearance to others? Are we really the authors of the 
things we do ? You are a subject self and may look at your 
object self," he said. To assume that the self you look at 
is your real self is an error. The problem is therefore to 
know the self that does the looking. 

There are two parts to our object self, the actual object 
self and the ideal object self. The difference between these 
two selves is the difference between what we are and what 
we would like to be. Humans always try to close the gap 
between the actual and the ideal. Our judgment is based on 
ideals and we cannot compromise them, as they are laws 
which are embedded in human character. If we would 
change our ideals at will, we would never be disturbed or 
feel a twinge of conscience for not following them. 

"It is a human characteristic that we identify ourself 
with the self we would like," said Professor Edison. "How- 
ever, we are in some basic way our ideal. A neurotic person 
is a person who can no longer tolerate the difference be- 
tween the ideal and the actual. He feels remorse as he is 
turning against himself. His feeling of guilt is a sign that 
he is morally alive and on the way out of his guilty feeling. 
He is greater than he feels."

We may share one of the greatest values in hfe if we 
treat a person as an end in himself and not as a means 
only. One must love another as oneself and this usually 
happens to a person once in his lifetime — when he falls in 
love. To treat a person as an end in himself is to treat him 
as if he were ourself. As Kant says, we must respect the 
morality of others. To treat a person as a means is to treat 
him as an instrument by which we want something done. 
Unfortunately, modern man is doing just this. He is em- 
ploying man to exploit man. His security is measured by 
his functional skill and he has to be dismissed when he is 
worn out. This, too, is unfortunate, for man really does 
matter. The fact that v>^e criticize ourselves shows that we 
are aware of our personal value. 

Our intention is the basis of all moral action. One can- 
not judge another by his actions or by what he says, if he 
does not know his intentions. Intentions are, therefore, true 
values and if they are known, a reliable estimate of a per- 
son's character may be made. 

Today man is lonely as he has lost his sense of signifi- 
cance in the universe. He need not be, for he is capable of 
being something and of knowing what he is. He must decide 
if God was in the beginning or if there was nothing in the 
beginning. Even the decision not to decide is a decision. 

Either our experience in the universe makes sense or it 
does not. Pascal has said that we must settle this issue if 
we wish to live in any great way. If the devil created our 
world he would have created it as it is today with one person 
believing one thing, one another. He would try to make our 
life a senseless farce so he could laugh at us. But our life 
would make sense if he were our audience and so we con- 
clude that either there is no person or our life does make 
sense. We cannot conceive absolutely nothing, so there 
must be something. Each one of us must reach his own 

Professor Edison, both an expert speaker and a concise 
lecturer, created a great deal of interest with his three talks 


and left each boy with much to think about. We hope he 
can return next year.

Dr. David Berger of Montreal gave an interesting 
lecture on radio-active materials on March 8, and showed 
charts illustrating developments in nuclear physics. He is 
of Polish nationality and was a doctor in Cracow. When the 
war broke out he and his family fled before the Germans 
only to be interned by the Russians, suffering many hard- 
ships. He came to Canada, after many adventures, in 1942. 
Recently he visited the Oak Ridge atomic plant in Tennessee. 

Dr. Berger said that the Japanese scientists made an 
extensive study of the effects o fradio activity on human 
beings after the atomic explosion at Hiroshima. They knew 
that the thyroid gland, situated in the neck, governs basic 
metabolism and that it has a great affinity for iron. They had 
been accustomed to testing a person's metabohsm by feeding 
him iron and then analyzing his blood and body wastes. This 
process was very laborious. It was greatly facilitated by 
the use of radio-active iodine. A person given this had his 
thyroid glands and body wastes tested by a geiger counter. 
In this way the ratio of absorption to waste could easily be 
determined. Radio-active iodine is now used to cure mal- 
functions of the thyroid such as cancer. 

Radio-active phosphorus is the second important medi- 
cal cure recently discovered. It is known that the brain 
contains a great deal of phosphorus. When a person is to 
be treated, he is given radio-active phosphorus and his skuU 
is tested with a geiger counter. The precise region on which 
to operate is determined and the patient can be sure that 
Jie will not have to sacrifice healthy brain tissues. 

Radio-active phosphorus can also be used to show how 
plants grow. It is put in the soil about the plant and may 
soon be detected in the leaves by a geiger counter. 


Blood clots may be cured by radio-active phosphorus 
as it tends to reduce blood production in the ends of bones 
where it is produced. When arteries become congested, it 
is usually necessary to remove the congested area as blood 
will not flow to it and it will die of its own accord. The 
extent of congestion can now be determined by giving a 
person radio-active sodium. It is absorbed in the blood 
stream and its course may be studied with a geiger counter. 
The point at which to amputate is thus determined. 

In closing, Dr. Berger said that the structure of metals 
is now revealed by radio-active cobalt. It is embedded in 
the centre of a casting, which is then examined by a geiger 
counter. K any flaws exist in the metal, radio-active radia- 
tions will occur. 

Dr. Berger used lantern slides and large diagrams to 
illustrate his lecture, which was much appreciated by every- 
one. He gave a set of illustrations on atomic physics to the 


On March 21, a film called "His Name Was Smith" was 
shown in the assembly hall. This film, about Lord Strath- 
cona and the C.P.R., dealt mainly with physical and mental 
strength and character building. Much of the script was 
prepared by Air Commodore O'Brian ('07-'12). 

Two interesting movies on oil were shown on March 
4 and March 13. Produced by the Shell Oil Co., the first 
film explained how oil is found by observation and calcu- 
lation. The second film explained the many steps in the 
raising of oil, the production, and refining of crude oil into 
usable products. 


Mr. J. M. Langton, chairman of the Engineering Coun- 
sellors, came to the School on March 21, and gave much 
advice on engineering. He began by outlining his career 


and used this as an example to show that once a man be- 
comes one type of engineer he is always able to change to 
another field of engineering or to any other type of job. 
He then explained what job the engineering counsellors did 
and what they were. "They are a volunteer group of 
graduates," he said, "who try to help, and give information 
and advice to students who wish to become engineers." 

He pointed out the important work of engineers in 
Canada and the great need for them in all fields. He 
enumerated the types there were and the possible jobs that 
they would be called upon to do. He used an example of 
a civil engineer in a town which was called upon to do 
anything from maintaining the sanitary works to inter- 
preting the town by-laws. The number of engineers in 
Canada is dropping but the need for good engineers is 
growing. He then gave the physical and mental require- 
ments of an engineer, who no longer has to be rugged, but 
who must be healthy and able to look after himself. He 
must have ,above all other things, a good personality and 
he must be able to get along with other people. Mr. Lang- 
ton said that there were four jobs for every graduating 
engineer this year. He gave the typical pay for an engineer 
who was just starting in a company, and said that up to 
the age of thirty a man could and should try different types 
of work. Another basic requirement for a prospective en- 
gineer is the ability to speak and write English and to be 
able to express a very technical subject in clear colloquial 

He then gave a series of questions a person could ask 
himself if he was not sure of what he wished to do. They 
ranged from, "What books do you read?", to "Are you lazy 
or ambitious?" Next he told the boys of the ways in which 
Some students choose their course, and described the dif- 
ference between university and high school life. 

In conclusion, Mr. Langton said that the need for en- 
gineers was growing and could be filled by boys such as the 
graduates of T.C.S. 



On Saturday, March 22, the choir of St. Mary Magdalene, 
led by Doctor Healey Willan, gave a recital of Tudor music 
in the Chapel. Dr. Willan gave an introduction to the various 
selections. Well-known pieces such as Ave Maria by Rach- 
maninoff and Hosanna by Weelkes were sung as well as three 
of Dr. Willan's own pieces ; compositions of Byrd and Pales- 
trina were also included. 

Dr. Willan is very well known in the U.S.A. and Europe 
for his polyphonic style of music. He is the composer of 
several masses, operas, and piano concertos. He has written 
two symphonies and the * 'Coronation Ode", played at the 
coronation of the late King George VI. 

He is the youngest man ever to be given a Doctor of 
Music in the Western Hemisphere. He is Irish by birth and 
at nineteen he was the organist for a famous London 
church. Until recently he was the organist at Toronto 

The singing of the choir was a revelation of how the 
human voices can be modulated and woven together in an 
intricate pattern as one. The singing was all unaccom- 
panied and the choir, in the gallery, were heard perfectly 
by the School and the large number of visitors. It was an 
evening we shall never forget. 


On the 26th of March, Mr. Perrault, the President of 
the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, found time to speak 
to the sixth form. He explained first what the Chamber of 
Commerce did, whether called by that name or called the 
Board of Trade as in Port Hope. He described it as groups 
of people interested in the well-being of the community. 
Mr. Perrault said that Canada had had extraordinary de- 
velopment in the last fifty years. The next fifty years would 
show huge development of natural resources. "It will take 
tremendous strength of character to control this develop- 



ment properly," he said. "You are sent to college not only 
to learn to earn your living. The universities must develop 
your character so you can know the responsibilities ahead. 
The New York Times said that the big-boned neighbour is 
putting on some muscle. Canada's development is more rapid 
than was that of the U.S. You may become engineers in 
B.C., Quebec, and Ontario," said Mr. Perrault. "There is a 
shortage of people like yourselves. This year, industry needs 
2,000 engineers; only 1,000 will pass from university. 

"To succeed in business," Mr. Perrault continued, "one 
must learn economics, learn how to write a letter properly, 
learn how to speak and learn how to convince people, how 
to sell your ideas, your plans, and yourself." He said work- 
ing for a big corporation gave a feeling of security and 
fairness, but advised working for a smaller company where 
one can move on faster if ambitious. He advised trying 
diJfferent jobs until about 35, then accepting a good position. 

He then outlined the personal requirements for suc- 
cess. One must have good health, a neat appearance, 
charming manner and a nice way of speaking. Also one 
must be enthusiastic, ambitious, and tactful. He said that 
any boy with these requirements must succeed. 

After this most interesting and entertaining lecture, 
Mr. Perrault answered questions asked by the boys about 
possible jobs, university courses, and hobbies. 

For the time he was with us, Mr. Perrault presented a 
clear picture of how to plan for a successful future, and we 
appreciate his kindness in coming to speak to us. 



On Saturday, April 18, Mr. Jock Maynard, the son of 
one of Trinity's most distinguished Old Boys, Jack May- 
nard, came to the School to speak to some of the members 
of the sixth form on actuarial science and life insurance as 
a career. Mr. Maynard, who is an actuary in the Imperial 
Life Assurance Company, said that there were very good 
opportunities for anyone in the actuarial field, but that the 
competition was very high, and the eight exams that must 
be passed to become an actuary are very difficult. Moving 
on to the life insurance salesman, he said that they must 
be men with a good knowledge of their business, and pos- 
sessing a great deal of initiative. Before Mr. Maynard left, 
he gave to the School two booklets on the actuarial pro- 
fession which are obtainable in the library. We are very 
grateful to Mr. Maynard for taking the time to come down 
to the School and speaking to us on these two subjects. 


Professor Allcut, Jiead of the Mechanical Engineering de- 
partment of the University of Toronto, was kind enough to 
come down and give a talk to the boys of the sixth and fifth 
forms on April 21. He stressed what he considered the finer 
points of Engineering and mentioned the importance of Eng- 
lish as a language in an Engineering course. He said that 
proper self-expression was very important to any engineer 
and stressed the new place of engineering in the world to- 
day. Prof. Allcut said that engineering is a philosophy and 
a way of hfe. He laid down a groundwork of advice for all 
potential engineers. 

Presenting the facts and advantages clearly. Prof. All- 
cut gave a most interesting talk on the essentials needed 
by a good engineer, and indeed he gave us excellent advice 
for any university career. 



Trinity College, Toronto, was founded on January 15th, 
1852, by Bishop Strachan; the College is therefore cele- 
brating its Centenary this year. 

For all but thirteen of these years, Trinity College 
School has had an extremely close affiliation with Trinity 
College and indeed for many years the Professors in Arts at 
Trinity were ex officio members of the Governing Body of 
Trinity College School. Professor William Jones, Professor of 
Mathematics at Trinity, Dr. James Bovell of the Trinity 
Medical School and the Rev. John Ambery, Professor of 
Classics at Trinity, had much to do With the founding of 
Trinity College School and were devoted and warm support- 
ers of the School during the early years of its existence. As 
a School, we shall always be deeply indebted to Trinity 
College for sheltering and nourishing us under its wing dur- 
in our infancy. In eighty-seven years many hundred T.C.S. 
boys have gone to Trinity and we like to feel they have con- 
tributed to the progress of the College. 

On January 15, 1952, a Centenary Dinner for under- 
graduates was held at the College in Strachan Hall and the 
School sent messages of congratulations and good wishes. 
We shall ever be proud of our close association with Trinity 


The Provost of Trinity College, Dr. R. S. K. Seeley, 
spoke on this subject to the members of the T.C.S. Ladies' 
Guild on May 8; his remarks proved to be of deep interest 
to all who heard him and we are printing a summary of 
his address: 

"There are two streams of education in Western civil- 
ization, both with an honoured history; they both adhere to 
pretty much the same curriculum, they both turn out 
students with about the same amount of knowledge, they

both contribute greatly to the welfare of the community. 
Why should there be two and not one? 

I am of the firm conviction that at the present stage 
of our development there is a greater need of the private 
system than ever before and that it is the duty of far-sighted 
citizens to ensure its preservation. This is not a popular 
opinion and it needs to be justified. 

.... What is the special contribution which the independent 
system has to offer? It may be enumerated as follows: — 

1. Resistance to mediocrity and standardization. 

2. Contribution to community responsibility. 

3. Realization of the potentialities of the individual. 

4. The right use of leisure. 

5. An offset to specialization. 

6. The appreciation of beauty. 

7. The education of the whole man. 

8. The relation of facts to values. 

Dr. Seeley then went on to comment on these topics. 
He spoke of the dreadful tendency to run together in a crowd 
and not wish to stand out as being different. All of us are 
inclined to pick up the same second-hand opinions. In a 
boarding school there is constant exchange of ideas and 
opinions between boys and boys, and boys and masters, and 
boys are always out-spoken. He mentioned the Welfare State 
idea and how people are increasingly taking the attitude 
that theirs is not the responsibility ; blame it on the Govern- 
ment or someone else. "Let George do it" seems to be a 
popular motto. The independent school constantly stresses 
the responsibility of the individual. It is also recognized 
that each individual has his own particular talents and that 
one does not have to be a specialist or an expert to be use- 

As leisure time seems to be increasing for most people 
(except housewives and those in the academic life) and the 
five day week will perhaps become a four and a half day week 
very soon, it is more than ever important that we should 
learn how to use our leisure time. Too many people are 
bored by staying at home simply because they have not 


learned how to interest themselves ; we depend far too much 
on movies, spectator sports, television and canned amuse- 
ment of all sorts. 

Too many professional people and skilled workmen 
know nothing outside their own field or how their profession 
fits into the scheme of things ; they are bounded by the high 
walls of their own specialization and cannot see over the 
top. At a recent conference of business and professional 
people at Trinity College it was generally agreed that an 
Arts course, and the study of the humanities which resulted 
in wide general learning and understanding, was a most 
valuable foundation. 

Dr. Seeley then went on to speak of the effects of beau- 
tiful surroundings especially on young people, and he said 
that he could not imagine a more lovely setting than Trinity 
College School had, or finer buildings. All this must have an 
unconscious effect on the young mind. 

Education is not a 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. business and you 
cannot really educate if you devote your attention to the 
mind alone. The whole process of living together, learning 
to respect other peoples' opinions, developing your own par- 
ticular talents and acquiring good manners is vitally im- 
portant. Here Dr. Seeley remarked that he had known a 
large number of T.C.S. boys and he had never met one yet 
who did not have good manners. 

Finally, the Provost spoke about the foundation of all 
education, namely, religion. The churches and churchmen 
initiated formal education and it has always belonged in 
the framework of religion. The State must always be 
agnostic and the only values it can instil are utilitarian or 
humanistic. The independent school can put education back 
where it has always belonged, in the framework of religion. 
The facts one learns are related to a system of values; one 
realizes the meaning and purpose of life and the ends to 
which facts are to be turned. 

But we must not allow our enthusiasm to run away with 
us. It is obvious that this kind of education is not possible 
for the whole population. It is doubtful whether it is even 



desirable for the whole population as there will always be 
those who cannot profit by it. 

But we have to ensure that a sufficiently large percent- 
age of our population has been imbued with the value of 
these things to give leadership and to set the pattern for 
the whole community. The weakness of the system at the 
present time is that at the pre-university level of independent 
education only a few can afford it and they are not neces- 
sarily the right few. It is up to those who believe in these 
things to see that they can be provided for all who will pro- 
fit by them and that a sufficiency of bursaries and scholar- 
ships are available for this purpose. 

Dr. Seeley finished with a quotation from Bishop 

"Whatever the world thinks, he who hath not much 
meditated upon God, the human mind and the summum 
bonum may possibly make a thriving earthworm but 
he will most indubitably make a sorry patriot and a 
sorry statesman." 




A three act play, "Laburnum Grove" by J. B. Priestley, 
was presented by the Dramatic Society to the School and 
many visitors on April 1. 

The story centres around a middle-aged suburban house- 
holder, George Radfern, who, unknown to his family, but 
known to the police, has been counterfeiting notes for 
several years. He tells his relations, his daughter, and her 
fiance the truth. They partially believe him, but later, Mrs. 
Radfern, who was absent, convinces them that he was only 
bluffing. But the daughter's undesirable beau is frightened 
enough to leave. An Inspector Stack visits Radfern, attempts 
to make Radfern confess to the counterfeiting, does not suc- 
ceed, then leaves. George Radfern instructs a member of 
the printing organization, Joe Fletten, to tell the gang about 
the Inspector's visit, then Radfern, with family, decides "to 
go on a long sea voyage," and safely escapes from the police. 

John Hylton, in the lead, handled the complex part of 
George Radfern with convincing skill. In one of the "tension" 
scenes, Rodney Anderson, as Inspector Stack, with his usual 
competence, built up the required tension, playing his part 
with accuracy. For straight humour, Lucy and Bernard 
Baxley, played by John Cumberland and Norm Seagram 
successfully nagged and barked at each other, and acted 
well together. Elsie and Beau Harold, played by R. Jackson 
and Chris. Spencer, presented a typical couple planning 
matrimony. Mrs. Radfern played by James Cran was a lik- 
able and sincere personality as he portrayed her. J. Bonny- 



castle played the humorous character of Fletten with en- 
thusiasm, and Gord. Penny, a sergeant of police, built up 
another tension spot with his convincing performance. 

As in past years, most of the congratulations must go 
to the director Mr. Dale, who once more carefully moulded 
the untrained members into polished performers. Ably 
helping him was Hugh Clark as assistant director and Chas, 
Simonds as property manager, who did exceptional work 
with all the varied props. Also continuously hard working 
and helpful was Van Straubenzee. The make-up and cos- 
tumes were in the competent hands of Miss Wilkin, Mrs. 
Spencer, and Mrs. Hodgetts. 

The Dramatic Society and Mr. Dale are to be congratu- 
lated again on a splendid performance. 

The third debate of the Senior Debating Society was 
held on March 7, with U.C.C. The resolution was "that 
trade unions do more harm than good." The first speaker 
for the Government and T.C.S. was Hugh Clark, who said 
that child labour was not abolished by the trade unions but 
by legislation demanded by the people. U.C.C. 's first speaker, 
Bower, mentioned the trade unions' stand against Com- 
mimism. The next two speakers for T.C.S. were H. Watts 
and T. Wilding who discussed the dangerous power of the 
unions and the damage unions had caused to installations 
by strikes. J. Kirkwood and R. Longstaffe of U.C.C. men- 
tioned the part unions play in raising low standards of work- 
ing conditions. N. Seagram was in the chair. Interesting 


speeches from the floor were made by J. Hylton and G. 
Penny. When a division of the House was called for, the 
motion was carried by a large majority, but the judges, Mr. 
Irwin and Mr. Stuart, led by the Rev, B. K. Cronk, of Port 
Hope, awarded the debate to the Opposition. Mr. Cronk 
mentioned many points of value for the improvement of the 
speakers' poise. The debate was closely contested and en- 
joyed by all. 

The last interscholastic debate was held with U.T.S. 
on March 14. N. Seagram in the chair presented the resolu- 
tion "that Canada should nationalize her major industries." 
For T.C.S., the Government were R. Anderson, acclaimed 
the best speaker of the evening, Gordon, and Spencer. For 
U.T.S. were M. Shoemaker, Morgan, and D. Farquiarson. 
The Government, led by Anderson, discussed the applications 
and advantages of nationalization, such as more money in 
the hands of the state for needed developments, and the 
elimination of monopolies. U.T.S. replied to these ideas with 
evidence of past inefficiency in state controlled industries 
and the lack of "rugged individualism under state control." 
After speeches from the floor, highlighted by an interesting 
speech from a visiting member, Hadwin of U.T.S., a division 
of the House supported the Opposition. The judges, Mr. E. 
Dithridge and Mr. G. Frederick, executives in Port Hope 
led by Magistrate R. B. Baxter, also supported the Opposi- 
tion and awarded this debate to U.T.S. 





The editors of the "RECORD" have finally recovered 
enough from the School dance (which, we all agree, was 
THE best ever), to call in all editorials, House-Notes, and, 
we're afraid, the Grapevine. 

With a few exceptions the dance went off very smoothly. 
It was an error in the Ministry of Defense that caused a 
late start to the evening. It seems that someone at the 
R.C.A.F. headquarters gave a wrong order and the Air Force 
orchestra which was supposed to attend in playing order, 
did not attend at all ! ! ... However, they promised to be 
here for Inspection Day Ordeal, which should prove to be 
another gay affair. . . . Then again "HYLTO" HYLTON did 
an excellent job of changing records (and stealing girls) 
until the orchestra which Mr. Ketchum got at the last mo- 
ment arrived from Peterboro. These eight kindly musicians 
proved to be not much short of terriffic. They made the 
occasion more than a mere dance, and closer to a real party ! 
Everyone realized how good they were when it came to 
playing the last dance, which was, with the Head's assist- 
ance on the drums, the best dance! 

DI and LINTON seemed to be rather confused when 
JOE and RAPID ROBERT failed to turn up for dinner that 
night. No one seemed to know where they were (except 
maybe Rosahe?). However, before chapel they were both 
happy again. We had JAMIE JAMES lined up for DI, and 


I think LINTON was ready to phone ROY the barber!! . . . 
As it was both JOE and BOB turned up, they had been 
doing a httle last-minute decorating in the hall (which looked 
magnificent, by the way. Many thanks to the Art Club and 

URCHIN McCAUGHEY got right back into the swing 
of School life by getting the band (?), plus BENNY, up for 
a SEVEN A.M. rehearsal outside the Junior School. You 
could tell it was much appreciated by the rows of happy 
faces hanging out the windows. One energetic young girl 
was so carried away that she got out onto the fire-escape 
(presumably to come down with a small token of apprecia- 
tion?) — but the loud BOOM made by the bass drum as it 
fell to the ground, plus BENNY THE HINDU'S mad rush 
up the fire-escape must have scared her back into seclusion, 
as she was heard from no more! — but enough about OUR 

B.S.S. also had a dance which a few of our elite attend- 
all seemed to fare fairly well (considering they didn't get 
any sleep), but poor old MOLE seemed rather in a daze 
when he arrived back at ten A.M. Saturday morning at 
LONGY'S house. 

If T.C.S. parents aren't receiving any phone calls from 
their beloved sons, it's because JIGABOO is always on the 
line — trying to reach HAITI. From the jungle music that 
comes out of BILL & PHIPP'S window, people are beginning 
to believe that it is occupied by a colony of Africa's wildest 
pygmies. Waddaya feed them, BILL?? Has anyone ever 
seen CAPTAIN MORGAN going in and out of PAUL GOD- 
FREY'S room once or twice this year. We hear PAUL is 
reading comics these days. (It's the strain of the History 
course.) Out of that same room some culprits swiped WES 
MASON'S bottom refrigerator. The suspects were all 
threatened with two quarters unless it was returned. Finally 
it was. Three cheers for GRANITE GORD. This same piece 
of ROCK was rather disturbed when SKIP YALE started 
giving a shower to CHIMP MERSTON and MIKE MATHER 




while they were rechning on Brent's second flat sun terrace! 
Of course SKIP was just getting revenge because someone 
(he couldn't tell who — he was wearing dark glasses) had 
just cooled him off a few minutes before. 

On leaving we apologize to all those we left out of the 
Grapevine, but some incidents we just didn't have the 
courage to report!! 


We take great pleasure in presenting for the first time 
the Trinity House Notes. 

Under command of ADMIRAL FORTAY and CHIEF 
PETTY OFFICER PROWER, the good ship Trinity has 
survived the lack of publicity in the House Notes. Assisting 
at the helm we find CHRIS and his bunking mate FOO-FOO 
who retire their services next year. The SWABS get their 
daily ration of BULLY-beef and rum at three bells, ATCHIE 
getting his full share. Under one of the scuppers, we find 
EGGHEAD manning the LIFEBUOY. After-mealtime 
GABB SESSIONS are dominated by SLEEPY'S nautical (?) 
stories, all of which are taken in by GULLIBLE JIM. To 
find relief of BOARDom, MONKEY has taken to reading 
The Port Hope Guide in his hammock. On his last shore 
leave MOO was seen MOUNTAIN CLIMBING (but not in 
the Alps). PHILSIE on the other hand has found THE 
GIRL in an OLD port. STANL-E has taken up navigation 
with the Admiral and has it in THE BAG. Well's, that's 
about all the news from Trinity except for the FLOODS 
which wake up the sleepers on the second deck (heavy seas?) 
So Avast, Ahoy, Port the Helm and all that sort of rot! 




It is indeed very strange that man, who prides himself 
on his many remarkable inventions — society being one — is 
seemingly incapable of living at peace with his fellow beings. 
Fortunately, at least a few far-sighted individuals have come 
to the realization that peace between nations can no longer 
be simply a topic of speculative conversation : it is as neces- 
sary as life itself if our civilization, and perhaps the human 
race, is to survive. 

The Rt. Hon, Winston Churchill once wrote that war 
has ceased to be terrible but glorious when the British and 
Boers exchanged their last shot. Since that time it has be- 
come a fantastically horrible attempt to wipe out not only 
the armies of the enemy, but all life and property of their 
nation. Humanity has twice been clawed and torn by the 
scaly talons of the once mighty German eagle, and is to- 
day being rushed to the brink of annihilation by an atheistic 
Kremlin. It is clear that our mimitions plants, armed forces 
and civilian defense "set-up" must be reorganized. It is 
clear that we have not earned the peace which was pur- 
chased with the lives of those almost forgotten men who 
lie in Flanders, at Vimy, and all over the world. It is clear 
that our heritage of freedom and peace has been "swapped" 
for ignorance and selfishness. 

( The twentieth century has never refreshed itself at a 
peaceful stream, 1914-1918, 1939-1945 mark only the years 


of formal warfare. But the rows of crosses, the maimed, 
the screaming orphans in a blitzed city do not tell the whole 
story of war. The nation's ledgers, scarlet with debit 
columns, are a reminder that the price of destruction is 
never paid. The interest on debts incurred by this realm 
at war will be paid by our grandchildren and their children. 
Who is to pay the principal? 

Under the shadow of tall war plants the slums sprawl 
like ghastly spiders. Filth and squalor exist in a country 
which is one of the world's richest. Billions are being forged 
into bayonets each decade, but still those slums, cancerous 
tissues in the breast of the nation, throb in witness that 
no country can be healthy enough to win the peace if her 
people are insecure and unhealthy. 

The greatest threat of war today, however, is not to the 
economy of the nation, or even our civilization, for economies 
and civilizations have fallen before. It is within our power 
to destroy ourselves by our own invention. Destruction of 
all living matter is fast coming within our reach, and unless 
we can control our potential forces, they will banish us from 
the earth. 

Assurance of peace lies within the United Nations. 
Policy of isolation is obsolete. Each nation must strive 
imselfishly for the benefit of the entire world. If such 
an idea seems too idealistic and impractical consider this: 
history has tried almost every means to keep the peace 
except faith and support of an international organization 
such as the U.N.O. All her attempts thus far have failed, 
yet all were practical and realistic. Perhaps the idealistic 
way is the only way. 

To achieve an effective United Nations there must be 
a revolution of world thought. Human behaviour is still far 
too primitive. It is on a wheel: scientific progress is not. 
If we are not to become the servants of our own civilization 
we must step forward. A new moral code is not necessary. 
We must simply adhere to the old, "Thou shalt love thy 
neighbour as thyself." Peace is ours for all tim.e if we fol- 
low this fundamental law. The revolution is this: a realiza- 
tion of the brotherhood of man. 


Unless each one of us decides that there must be no 
war, it will always threaten our lives. Unless each one of 
us rids his life of intolerance and misunderstanding, peace 
is impossible, for in the final analysis the solution to the 
question of world peace lies within the individual.

A soft breeze slowly sweeps the silent twilight water. 
Rippling its glassy surface. The bullfrogs' laughter, 
Rumbling, breaks the stony stillness. 

Little firefly, flitting, soaring, diving, gUding, 

A tiny twinkling, glowing, shooting star, dancing. 

She quaintly flutters with the breeze. 

A dark dour shadow slowly, smoothly drifting through 
The wriggling ribbons of the river bed; anew 
Moving with lithe and supple ease. 

A rapid streak of foaming water, 
A splash, and sudden silence. 
The little firefly. Nature's daughter, 
Is on the fish's conscience.

My first recollection of anything associated with maps 
is my disappointment in discovering that each country did 
not change colour as the map had indicated, but remained 
quite similar to the one bordering it. The map had indicated 
that the water was blue and so it was. Logically I thought 
that as I crossed the bridge at Niagara Falls the United 
States would be a yellowish colour; it must have been an 
American map I had seen, for the British Empire was not 
its customary red. Canada was green, which seemed sensible 


at the time, though I have since learned that to have any- 
thing but red for the British is equivalent to treason. Conse- 
quently I expected the United States to be yellow, if not 
completely, at least a little bit, as this was the colour which 
had been assigned to it. 

While I've managed to overcome the first illusions of 
my extreme youth, maps still seem to be generally untruth- 
ful to me. For example, I now find it just as confusing to 
drive on a twisted, back-breaking road through the Andes 
which Imperial Oil has indicated so co-operatively by a 
straight blue and white checkered line, as I used to find 
it when I discovered the road was not painted in large blue 
and white checkers. 

When I look at a map of the Western Hemisphere it is 
not hard to locate Lima, Peru, and New York. I can see 
a huge distance indicated between these points. When I 
come to locate Huaraz, only two hundred and fifty miles 
from Lima, I find it, if they consider it far enough away 
to mark at aU, a barely perceptible distance away from 
home. Nevertheless, it takes me just as long to drive from 
Lima to Huaraz over dusty, dirty mountain roads which 
have two-thousand-foot cliffs off one side, in a rattling, 
jolting taxi as it does to make the eighteen-hour flight by 
plane to Canada. In addition, in the plane I have a com- 
fortable bed if I want it and a hot, full-course turkey dinner 
served with the best of Chilean wine which is brought not 
ten minutes before take-off. Just as obvious as the difference 
in comfort in favour of the air line, however, is the education 
I obtain from the mountain drive. The queer customs of the 
Andean Indian tribes, the blackness of the nights high in 
the mountains and the character of twenty-two-thousand 
foot snow-clad peaks are only a few of my most vivid 

Never yet have I seen a map of a ski slope which arouses 
a feeling of excitement in me the way a picture of herring- 
bone tracks between the pines sends a tingle through my 
spine and a twitch to my feet. 


Maclean's published a map of Toronto recently. Topo- 
graphically it was a nightmare, but never have I seen any- 
thing which conveyed better the ratio of an hour's crawl 
along the Danforth to the dash along Highway No. 2A to 
Oshawa from Scarboro in forty-five minutes. Maps are 
fine. I don't condemn them; but maps are not relative to 
conditions and therein lies my undoing. I have never had 
any trouble with the geography of France, Spain, or Italy. 
I even know the Seine runs through both France and Paris 
and could draw free-hand a reasonable map showing all 
three in their proper positions. Perhaps this stems from the 
fact that I have never seen any of them.

The gusty wind whipp'ed, snapping 'round his legs, 
And whined a psalm of loney, far-off ways 
That whispered, hollow and remote, the dregs 
Of livelihood; for dimming nights and days 
Aroused within his mind; vigilant he stood 
Upon the rough-hewn brow of grassy cliff, 
And wondered pensively upon the mood 
Through which the toil of former years stood stiff: 
The War; the needless slaughter on French soil, 
That wrought an age-old nation destitute. 
The reckless, endless, unpredicted toil; 
Of muddy trench-work; gallantry grown mute. 
Why, God, should brave men die when so endowed? 
Then silently he bared his head, and bowed.

Charing Cross! That is where two trains a minute 
dash in and dash out. Where do they go? They go all 
directions, the four points of the compass are never neglect- 


ed. One every two minutes goes to each. Where do they 
return? Charing Cross! 

A maze of hallways is this magnificent underground 
catacomb. Corridors twisting and turning; signs pointing; 
voices babbling, is what it consists of. Ticket collectors shout 
to an unwary American: "Your stub, please." 

This maze has fascinated millions; it will do the same 
to millions more. From the buying of your ticket to your 
ascending into the world again in Sloane Square, it seems to 
be a dream. 

You descend to the platform and gaze around. Posters 
adorn the wall, announcing that "Guiness is Good for You," 
or "Smoke Player's Navy Cut". A blue and red sign tells 
you that you are in Charing Cross. A train slows down 
behind you and myriads of people without description tumble 
out and swarm up the stairs as if they were dying for one 
last look at the sun. Then a slight whirr, and the train is 

Suddenly from a black hole in the wall a single eye 
comes hurtling towards you. It slows down, then stops. 
People can be seen pushing their way out the other side. 
Others push you into the car and you sit down. The doors 
are open for fifteen seconds and then slam shut. Advertise- 
ments flash by, and you are hurled violently into a Stygian- 
black oblivion, and Charing Cross is gone.

Shallow from its soulless soul, 
unreal within its glassy gaze, 
echoing nothing of its own, 
the colourless mirror thinks. 

Not thoughts new and self -created, 
only idle dead reflections; 
and all among its grey surroundings, 
the grey mirror thinks. 


Curves and slants have now evolved: 
the modern glass is scientific; 
distorted image — still to-day 
it has not learnt to think.

When the inevitable call sounds from the mountains 
every winter, I don my pack and skis, my poles and pro- 
visions and set off for those formidable snow-clad peaks. 
A rugged two-day climb through the green, scented timber 
is no obstacle when my mind visualizes the immediate fu- 
ture. I am inspired to push onward by an emotional desire 
to reach those obscure peaks. At last, I emerge from the 
shadowing enclosure of the forest and behold that long 
dreamjt of Utopia. 

Now I am at my destination — the summit of my moun- 
tain. The sun dodges in and about the white cumulus clouds 
which are the spires and cathedrals of the heavens. The 
sky is a heavenly everlasting blue, which knows no con- 

I crouch low, tightening the thongs which bind my 
skis to my feet and then stand erect. I throw back my arms 
in a manly stretch and expand my chest. Invigorating moun- 
tain air invades my body, permeating every molecule of me. 
I am reborn. I point my skis away from the heights. I have 
challenged the mountain. Life begins with the first step. 
My poles sink into the crystal crust and the descent begins. 
My body is turning^ twisting, writhing towards the base 
in smooth curves. Artistic arcs are embedded in the snow, 
throwing up showers of white powder. My eyes are blurred 
with the water caused by my self created wind. The sounds 
of hickory boards skimming the silvery surface is heaven's 
praise of a perfected art. This is the thrill, the pleasure of 
skiing — the speed — the solitude — the oblivion — the feeling 
of a body hurtling through space under human control.

To most Americans, Canada today is the country which 
is coloured pink on the map and covers that vast area to 
the north of the United States which extends to the North 
Pole. It is a land full of halfbreeds, mounted police, totem 
poles, icebergs, and is ruled by Great Britain as a curiosity. 

Only recently a United States Congressman proposed 
that the United States buy this strange pink land from 
Great Britain. This proposal was so ridiculous that it re- 
quires no comment. All it did do was to show how poorly 
informed the American public is and how unfortunate they 
are to be educated in a school system where such ignorance 
is allowed to breed. 

In the last fifty years Canada has come from a position 
of being little more than a colonial possession, with control 
over purely domestic affairs only, to a position of complete 
autonomy. She is not the undeveloped, backward country 
tremendously rich in natural resources many Americans be- 
lieve her to be. Many can remember, without doubt, the 
day when Canada could not make trade treaties or treaties 
of high policy without the counter signature of an English- 
man. But few know that Canada today is a completely in- 
dependent country which is steadily rising in world im- 

It was in the League of Nations that Canada first got 
full recognition as a world power. She Was one of the fifteen 
permanent members of the League and, as the largest power 
representing the Western Hemisphere, she was looked to as 
representing the opinion of both North and South America. 
Her position was a strong and important one and though 
her newly-found autonomy did not affect her non-committal 
foreign policy which she had pursued for years, she was 
taking a much more active part in world aifairs than the 
United States before World War Two. 

Now, today, more than ever before, her prestige in the 
United Nations has grown. Canada has reached political 
and economic maturity. She possesses rich natural resources 



in hydro power, oil, iron, lumber, nickel and uranium. With 
her steadily increasing population, these resources are being 
developed. She presents to the immigrant, whom she needs, 
one of the few lands remaining where opportunities for 
unmigrants exist. She has developed into a great wealthy 
nation to whom the other nations of the world will look for 
leadership in the future.

The Record would like to congratulate Bob McEterment, 
Hugh Watts and John Long on being awarded Distinction 
Caps in hockey for the 1951-1952 season. All three boys 
contributed greatly to the success of the Bigside Team and 
they richly deserve the honour which has been conferred 
upon them. 

We would also like to congratulate Pete Phippen on 
being awarded a Distinction Cap for gym this year. He 
showed excellent form in winning both the Bigside Gym. 
Competition and the Eastern Canada Junior Championship. 
As Captain of the gym team he has done a great deal to 
assist the younger boys in their gym work. 



The Record would also like to congratulate the Swim- 
ming and Squash teams for winning their respective Little 
Big Four championships. With swimming under the coach- 
ing of Mr. Hodgetts and with squash being coached by Mr. 
Landry, they were in top condition when the crucial day 
arrived and they well deserve the honor of being Little Big 
Four Champions. 


T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. at Port Hope, March 1. Won 8-2 
On March 1, U.C.C. were visitors on Trinity ice. 
Throughout the entire game U.C.C. did not seem to have 
the driving power that they had shown in Toronto previ- 
ously when they beat Trinity 4-1. It may have been also 
that a much improved T.C.S. team was opposing them. From 
the very beginning of the first period T.C.S. showed her 
overwhelming spirit and drive that were to win her the 

After the start of the first period, McDerment could 
only hold himself for thirty seconds before he roared in on 
goal and scored the first tally. Then at 3.25, McKay netted 
the first goal for U.C.C. with MacDonald and Gardiner as- 
sisting. Shortly after, U.C.C. scored again with Paul taking 
the credit at 6.77. After a series of breakaways Currie 
scored from the blue line at 10.45 with McDerment assist- 
ing. The rest of the period was spent in centre ice or in 
U.C.C. territory. The period ended in a 2-2 tie. 

Only four minutes and forty-six seconds of the second 
period had elapsed when Long went right through the U.C.C. 
team and scored the goal to make the score 3-2. Then a 
minute and a half later Yale took the puck down the ice 
and centered to Long, who was able to score. Then at 7.02 
Long passed to Clark who netted a tally from the blueline. 
Some great stick handling was done in this peiod by both 
sides, and it ended with the score T.C.S. 5, U.C.C. 2. 


In the third period an aggressive T.C.S. team stepped 
on the ice. After three minutes of play Currie found the 
mark for his second goal with McDerment and Church 
assisting. Then at 9.44 Currie was able to complete his 
hat-trick on a beautiful corner shot, McDerment getting 
the assist. Less than a minute later McDerment scored on 
a breakaway with Watts gaining an assist. The play switch- 
ed from one end of the rink to the other at a fast rate, 
neither T.C.S. nor U.C.C. were able to score. 

Currie and Watts stood out for T.C.S., while Gardiner 
was the best for the losers. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S. at Toronto, March 5. Lost 5-4 

On March 5, an eager Trinity hockey team arrived at 
Varsity arena to tangle with U.T.S. in the championship 
game. Trinity was very slow to start but later began show- 
ing her prowess but not before U.T.S. had scored three goals 
in two periods. Then in one of the best periods of the 
hockey season Trinity put up an excellent show. 

In the first period T.C.S. seemed encumbered for some 
reason. At 9.30 Cossar netted the first tally for U.T.S. 
Then a minute later Taylor scored another goal to make the 
score 2-0. The rest of the first period was spent in series 
of attacks and defences which, however, did not change 
the scoreboard. 

During the second period U.T.S. could only wait for 
one and a half minutes before they notched their third goal. 
This made the score 3-0. The action began to speed up a 
little more and during this period T.C.S. showed a little of 
her rather needed skill. However, although Trinity out- 
shot U.T.S., she was unable to obtain that first goal. The 
period ended 3-0 for U.T.S. 

At the beginning of the third period a very determined 
Trinity team stepped upon the ice. The action speeded up 
and Trinity was obviously overpowering her adversary. 
Then at the eleven minute mark, Arnold started the ball 
rolling by scoring on a shot from the blue line with Yale 
assisting. Currie scored the second goal with an assist from 



McDerment. The third goal in less than three minutes was 
scored by McDerment unassisted. T.C.S. added another goal 
when Long scored from Seagram and Yale. Thus T.C.S. had 
a splurge — four goals in less than five minutes. Then bad 
luck caused a mishap to the T.C.S. team. During a muddle 
around the T.C.S. goal, goalie Lafleur was hit in the fore- 
head by a stick. The game was stopped for fifteen minutes 
while he was temporarily bandaged up. However, this time 
enabled U.T.S. to recover from the sudden onslaught. Then 
when play was resumed, U.T.S. scored another goal which 
tied up the score at 4-4. With three minutes to go in the 
game the score was tied. Then with only a minute and a 
half to go, U.T.S. got a breakaway down the edge of the 
ice and were able to score the winning goal. 

McDerment and Long stood out for the losers and 
Cossar and Whyte were the strongest for the victors; both 
goalies also gave excellent performances throughout the 

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. at Port Hope, March 8. Won 2-1 

On March 8, S.A.C. were guests on Trinity ice. The 
game started off at rather a slow pace, but McDerment soon 
started the ball rolling for T.C.S. by scoring two quick goals. 
These proved to be the clinching points, and in a spectacular 
finish, T.C.S. were able to come through with a 2-1 victory,. 

Three minutes after the first period had begun Mc- 
Derment scored the first goal, with Watts assisting. Then 
less than two minutes later McDerment received a pass from 
Currie, raced in on the goal and netted his second goal, to 
make the score 2-0. The remainder of the period was used 
by both teams in making rushes. Watts and Clark showing 
great defensive skill. 

Although no goals were scored in the second period, 
a large number of penalties were handed out of which 
neither team was able to take successful advantage. The 
second period ended with T.C.S. in front by a score of 2-0. 

In the third period the play greatly improved as both 
teams settled down to fast, exciting hockey. There was very 


close checking on both sides due to the score. The play 
moved quickly and S.A.C. threatened to score several times. 
Then with less than three minutes left in the game Robert- 
son scored for S.A.C. from a muddle around the T.C.S. 
goal-mouth, with Malcolmson assisting. Both teams fought 
desperately to the end, with T.C.S. emerging victorious with 
a 2-1 score. 

Graham was the leader of the Saints' attack while 
Lafleur in the T.C.S. nets was a standout throughout the 

T.C.S. vs. GROVE at Lakefield 

In the return game with the Grove, Trinity emerged 
with a 5-3 victory after an exciting and close-checking 

The first period was very evenly played most of the 
way through. Seagram went off for charging at the five- 
minute mark, but Lafleur turned back everything that came 
his way. With the teams back at full strength, the Lake- 
field team turned on the pressure, and after a long scramble 
around the T.C.S. net, Ryder popped one in with an assist 
going to Legate. There was no further scoring and the 
period ended 1-0 in favour of the home team. 

With five minutes gone in the second period, Church 
slapped home a pass from McDerment, and minutes after 
McDerment added another to put the School out in front 
to stay. The rest of the period was scrambly, until Long 
took a pass from Seagram to end the period 3-1 for T.C.S. 

Long started the second period off on a perfect goal 
from the blue line, with Yale gaining an assist. Ramsey 
then took a pass from Legate to score for the Grove. How- 
ever, Seagram banked home Yale's rebound to give the 
School a three-goal lead. In the dying minutes of the game, 
Ramsey scored again for Lakefield, to make the final score 

The team seemed hampered at first by the small ice 
surface, but found their feet in the second period. Lafleur 
was outstanding throughout. 



T.C.S., in their last game of the season, put on a 
spectacular effort to give the Kapps an 11-6 drubbing, 

T.C.S. starred in the first period with five goals of 
which McDerment scored two, the first unassisted when he 
took the puck on a lone rush, and on the second an assist 
went to Higgins. Two of the outstanding passing plays re- 
sulted in two goals. Brown from Church and Yale from 
Arnold, who set up the play from his own blue line. Long 
scored the fifth goal, backhanding a brilliant pass from 
Yale to put it past Lawson, an Old Boy of the School in the 
Kappa nets. There were no penalties in the period although 
the play was very fast and hard checking. 

In the second period the visitors outshot and outscored 
Trinity, with McDerment getting the only T.C.S. goal on a 
pass from Brown. Beck opened the scoring for the Kapps 
on a pass from Casset, w'ho passed from behind the T.C.S. 
net, just after McDerment's goal. Palmer beat Lafleur with 
a quick goal from a scramble in front of the T.C.S. net for 
the final goal in this period. 

The Kapps sunk four goals in the third period against 
five for T.C.S. Fullerton accounted for three of the Kapps' 
goals all unassisted, while Ballantine got the only other 
Kapp goal on a fast breakaway. Bigside markers for the 
five goals were Church, Brown, Long, Yale and Arnold, 
with assists going to McDerment, Higgins, Clark, Long and 
Yale respectively, making the final score 11-6. 

Fullerton was the outstanding star of the Kapps as 
well as being the star of the game. Bigside played very well 
as a unit and thus it was very difficult to pick out a star. 

T.C.S.— McDerment (Capt.), Watts (V-Capt.), Currie, Church, 
Long, Yale, Seagram, Brown, Arnold, Clark, Higgins, LaFleur, Mc-

the power and scored four goals in quick succession, Bate-

The game was hard fought and several penalties were 
handed out. In the first period Johnson scored the only goal 
at 14.49, to give T.C.S. a 1-0 lead. Port Hope seemed to 
have a stronger team and more drive, but T.C.S. had suffi- 
cient spirit to play hard and hold them off. 

In the second period Osier scored the lone goal at 
11.45. The play was more even with T.C.S. holding a slight 
edge over the opposing team.

man started the scoring early in the first period on passes 
from David Osier and Seagram. The Saints tied the score 
up before the end of the period on a goal by Hazzlet, and

scored from close in. Mike Webb tied the score on a pass 


out from Pete Giffen, who minutes later put the School out 
in front as he and Webb combined again. The third period 
saw Seagram make the score 4-2 as he banged home a pass 
from Osier. In the dying minutes, Harris scored his second 
goal for S.A.C. to make the final score 4-3. 


LITTLESIDE vs. PICKERING, at Newmarket. Won 12-1 

T.C.S. outplayed Pickering from the start of the game. 
At 2.30 in the first period Trowsdale opened the scoring on

pass from Scott. The first period ended with the score 2-0 
for T.C.S.

LITTLESIDE vs. S.A.C, at S.A.C. Tied 5-5 

In their final game of the season Littleside gained a 
tie with St. Andrew's to give them an undefeated season. 

Early in the first period the Saints built up a three-goal 
lead which put them in front for the rest of the game. Later 
in the period Budge put the School on the score sheet with 


a quick goal. The second period opened with a 3-1 score 
against the School. The play being very close, this period 
only allowed one goal to each team with Trowsdale being 
the T.C.S. marker. In a wide open third period Budge scored 
his second goal after continuous pressure on the S.A.C. net. 
Mills tied the score minutes later only to have the Saints 
come back with a goal to take the lead again. With seconds 
to play Scott made a nice end-to-end rush, flipping the puck 
to Trowsdale in front of the S.A.C. net, who knocked it in 
for his second, and game-tying goal. 

Budge and Trowsdale with two goals apiece deserve 
special mention, while Mills and Scott were steady on 

Middleside and Littleside House Games 

In the first game the teams fought to a 3-3 tie in a 
hard-played match. As a result a second game was played 
in which Brent showed a superior team and outplayed 
Bethune throughout the game, emerging with an 8-1 victory. 

Littleside played a single game and Brent just edged 
out Bethune by a 3-2 score. The game was hard fought, with 
Budge, Cumberland and Watson scoring for Brent and 
Kilbum and Marpole chalking up one goal each for Bethune. 




T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. at Port Hope, March 1. Won 61-42 

On March 1 the first basketball team finally cUcked for 
their first league victory of the year, defeating Upper Canada 
61-42. The game was well played and many smooth plays 
were displayed by both sides. T.C.S. played by far their 
best game of the year as they finally got all their plays 
working to advantage. Hugh Walker put on a sparkling 
performance as he hit the hoop for 35 points. He was 
backed by fine defensive work by the whole team and the 
two guards, John Board and Phil Muntz, in particular. 

T.C.S. — Walker 35, Houston 9, Ryley 6, Thomas 6, Board 3, 
Cowan 2. 

T.C.S. vs. U.T.S., March 5. Lost 62-45 

On March 5 the first basketball team met U.T.S. in a 
return match in Toronto. The second game, hke the first, 
was very fast and very close checking with the result that 
many fouls were called on both sides. U.T.S. showed early 
in the game that they had a fine team as they set up several 
plays and took an early lead. However, T.C.S. came back 
in the second to cut their lead slightly. In the second half 
the game really opened up and both teams scored often. 
But T.C.S. was unable to make up the ground they lost in 
the first quarter and U.T.S. rolled to a 62-45 victory. Walker 
led the T.C.S. attack with fourteen points while Houston and 
Thomas scored ten each. 

T.C.S.— Walker 14, Houston 10, Thomas 10, Muntz 3, Board 4, 
Cowan, Ryley 4, Mowry. 


T.C.S. vs. Sj\..C. at Port Hope, March 8. Lost 74-60 

In their final game of the year the Senior Basketball 
squad met St. Andrew's in a return game here at the School. 
In facing the St. Andrew's team they met perhaps the best 
balanced and most powerful team the Prep School league 
has seen for many years. However, despite the fact that the 
outcome of the game was never in doubt, the School put up 
a fine fight and kept the Saints husthng from the start. The 
performance of the first line trio of Walker, Houston, and 
Thomas was outstanding as they scored 18, 15, and 13 
points respectively. The fine display of checking put on by 
the guards John Board, Kit Cowan and Phil Muntz was also 
excellent. Despite the loss of the final game the T.C.S. team 
is to be commended for their many fine performances 
throughout the year. But most of the credit must go to 
their coach, Mr. Archbold, who worked so hard all year to 
develop new players and improve the standard of basket- 
ball at T.C.S.

The Juniors took the floor on February 29 for the return 
game with Upper Canada. The teams were very well bal- 
anced, and played a very close game to the half when the 
score stood at 10-16 for Trinity. After that T.C.S. pulled 
away rapidly to win the game 37-21. Walker ii and Wevill 
played a very fine game for T.C.S. 

On March 3, T.C.S. met the Port Hope Juniors. Trinity 
at once opened fire with a basket scored by Doug Colboume, 
and pulled away from Port Hope. The last few minutes of 
the game were very exciting when Port Hope started to 
catch up, but the final whistle went with the score at 38-31 
for T.C.S. Both Colbournes did exceptionally well for the 

The last game of the season was the return game with 
St. Andrew's when Trinity visited Aurora on March 10. 
Trinity took the floor against a highly skilled team, and her 
plays failed. It was a fast game. T.C.S. relied on her fast 
break, but was unable to cope with the defense of the Saints. 
The final score stood at 35-36 for S.A.C. 

We must congratulate the Juniors on a very excellent 
season under the expert coaching of Mr. Archbold. 

They won a total of six out of their nine games, and 
congratulations go to the captains.

JUNIOR HOUSE GAME. Won by Bethune 35-34 

Bethune selected their team from last year's reserve, 
and immediately took the lead over Brent whose efforts 
were not co-ordinated for the first half. However, Brent 
began to pull themselves together after the half, and by the 
last quarter took the lead. From then on it was a close race ; 
in the last Dover scored for Bethune, winning the game 


Best players for Bethune were Dover and Adamson; 
for Brent, Don and Doug Colbourne and Mowry.

the T.C.S. swimming team splashed to their second suc- 
cessive Little Big Four Championship. 

Although the School took the lead after the first race 
and was never headed, the meet was very close and very 
exciting. In fact, St. Andrew's were very close to first place 
right up until the final relay. However, they fell three points 
short and the final standing read: T.C.S. 41, S.A.C. 38, 
U.C.C. 32, and Ridley 25. Only one record was broken during 
the meet and that was by John Girvin of Ridley, who set a

Meet With West End "Y" at Port Hope 

On Saturday, March 1, the swimming team met a team 
from West End "Y" in a swimming meet held in our pool. 
Although the School swimmers were beaten 41 to 20 by the 
Toronto boys the meet was a great success and the Trinity 
swimmers gained valuable competition experience. George 
Stulac of the "Y", who also swims for the Toronto Blues, 


was the outstanding swimmer as he set a new pool record 
for the 100 yards free style with the very fast time of 

53 6/10 seconds. Woolley of T.C.S. won the 40-yard free 
style event and the School also took the 160-yard free style 



On March 29, at the Toronto Badminton and Racquet 
Club, the annual Little Big Four Squash Tournament was 
held. This year, T.C.S. won back the Championship by

On Saturday, April 27, a gym. team composed of Phip- 
pen, Jackman, Blackburn, Lafleur i and Lafleur ii journeyed 
to Aurora to join teams from Etobicoke Collegiate, Appleby 
College and St. Andrew's College in a gym. competition. 
Etobicoke won the team championship by two points, just 
edging out T.C.S. who finished second. Appleby finished 
third and St. Andrew's fourth. 

Phippen of T.C.S. won first place on horizontal bar, 
parallel bars and horse to become the outstanding individual 
performer of the meet. 

It was a most successful meet, and all parties agreed 
that they would like to have the competition here next year. 

The captain of the gym. team, Pete Phippen is to be 
congratulated for his fine performance in winning the 



Eastern Canada Junior Gym. title at a meet held in Montreal 
during March. He trained very hard for this meet and really 
deserved the award.

The Ski Competition for the 1951-1952 season was held 
on two successive week-ends in March. Although snow con- 
ditions were poor, some excellent skiing was produced by the 
competitors. The Bill Strong Memorial Cup for the downhill 
and slalom races was won by Eric Jackman followed very 
closely by Art Hardy. The Sifton trophy for the cross coun- 
try race was won by Hardy followed by Jackman. Mike 
Webb took third place in all events.

Our very sincere thanks to the Toronto Branch of the

undertaking the "face-lifting" of C. Dorm Reading Room. 
The results are very gay and attractive and will be greatly 
appreciated by all who use the room either now or in the 

We apologize for writing about Hockey! in this num- 
ber of the Record, but must explain that our last and indeed 
most exciting game against Ridley was not played until after

Our congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Cayley on the 
birth of their daughter. 


Ants have attracted attention and observation for many 
centuries. There are many references to them in old books. 
They are mentioned twice in the Bible. Sayings have also 
been formed, one of them being, "Go to the ant, thou slug- 
gard; consider his ways and be wise." 

Modern observation supports the ancient knowledge in 
full. We are learning more and more about the ant's habits, 
social life, efficiency and intelligence, and we are moved 
to admiration. The work of a honey-bee might be very 
efficient but it includes many labours with which the ant can 
dispense. For example; the ant consumes vegetable and 
animal food while the bee only eats pollen honey. This means 
the ant has a simpler food gathering problem. The ant can 
venture forth from its dwelling while the bee has to remain 
by the hive. We find among the thousands of species that 
some groups are apt to hunt and raid, make slaves and even 
grow crops. The more we learn about these little creatures, 
the more we respect them. 

There are many main features of ant life. They exist in 
three grades: males, females and workers. The latter are 
wingless. The males and females are winged but the females 
lose their wings after the marriage flight. There are large 
communities. The females and workers attend to the help- 



less larva with true motherly love. These nurses feed the 
grubs from their own mouths. Soon these grubs form co- 
coons and emerge as perfect insects. 

The Yellow Meadow Ants lead a very simple community 
life. The ant makes its nest in light soil and they consist of 
chambers excavated at various levels and connected by a 
network of tunnels. The community is founded by a single 
queen ant. She, like the queen bee, is responsible for the 
laying of eggs. After digging a small tunnel ending in a 
chamber, and closing it, she spends some months in hiber- 
nation laying eggs. She feeds the grubs with her own saliva 
and they grow rather slowly; they are smaller than later 
broods. The first brood having arrived, she spends the rest 
of her time in a royal way with her only duty— the growth 
of her colony. She is now attended by workers who dig tun- 
nels with their powerful jaws. 

Unlike the bees, the ants may have several queens in 
a colony and by the joint effort of these and the workers, 
the colony grows into a prosperous community which we 
often see but hardly notice on walks and hikes.

This process is carried on all over the world, producing 
paper of all types and qualities for the convenience of 
millions of people. The paper, of course, originally comes 
from the wood pulp of a tree and the idea came from the 
wasp's nest. The paper for the wasp's nest comes from the 
chewing up- of wood, forming a substance which becomes 
dry after the nest is finished. 

Annually, large numbers of trees are cut down and 
rolled into a river which carries the numerous logs down the 
winding path of water to the mill. The logs are raised on 
a conveyor belt into the mill and pass into a machine which 
removes the bark from them. This same machine chops the 
logs into small chips which are sorted out and the neces- 
sary fibres are kept. These fibres are treated in boilers at 


high temperatures and are soaked in many solutions. Having 
been quite changed now, the tiny fibres are bleached white. 

After pressings and more soakings, the fibres pass into 
a machine which is very long and narrow. This machine 
(about 170 feet in length) presses the fibres into paper 
after a series of small operations all combined in the one 
machine. The paper is pressed, soaked, repressed, treated, 
and other basic operations are performed before we find a 
completed roll of paper at the opposite end of the machine. 

The finished product waits in storage to be shipped any- 
where in the world for many uses. One ton of wood-pulp 
wull make over three acres of paper ; one hundred and eighty 
tons of pulp will paper a square mile, while the annual out- 
put of five million tons is enough to paper almost thirty 
thousand square miles.

Many days after the Canadian farmer has sown his last 
seeds in his fertile fields, there comes another day, or several 
days, when he must collect his bounteous harvest. 

During this valuable season, the farmer is up early in 
the morning to "feed" his hard-working machines. The trac- 
tors must be filled with gas and then the combine and bailer 
are serviced. These are vital and fragile instruments in the 
field of harvest and they must be treated with the utmost 
care. Every bolt, chain and wheel is checked, and after all 
this has been completed, every joint has to be greased and 
oiled. This is a laborious task since all the grease tips seem 
to be in the most awkward positions. 

Having completed a full two hours' work, the men tow 
the heavy machines into the field where they are put to 
work immediately the warm sun has absorbed the dew. The 
combine is the first to leave and it cuts the stalk, separates 
the straw from the grains, and shoots the straw out the 
back. The grains of wheat, or oats, flow into a large bin 
and are later transferred into a truck or bags. The bailer

O'er the churn of ebbing tides, 
Upon the sands of alien shores, 
Betwixt the coral and the sea. 
Within the cove he glides. 
And by the crag he soars. 
Sheltered by the quiet lea. 

While the currents hurl their knives. 
And writhe like tortured slaves, 
Graceful and agile, now in flight, 
Like a lightning streak he dives 
Toward the surging billowed waves 
Below the swell, and out of sight. 

Now merging from the swell. 

Then back he flies toward the lea. 

For his is the restless zephyr. 

The main, the surge and the fishy smell, 

A master mariner of the sea. 

He flies undaunted to this day — the Seagull.

In a cedar swamp on the side of a small lake, several 
birds had come to nest for the summer in the tossing rushes 
along the shore. 

Two of these birds were Redwinged Blackbirds. The 
male had a coal black body and wings, except for a bright 


-^red tip on the shoulder of both wings. He was perched on a 
swaying branch of a willow, singing his liquid sweet, 
"0-ka-lee-e" to his mate, who was faithfully sitting on the 
nest incubating the four precious eggs. 

Then, unnoticed by either of the birds, a black form, a 
menace to all bird life, stole its way across the nesting 
ground toward the unwary Redwings, Not until that small 
triangular head with flickering tongue had pushed its way 
through the reeds a few feet away from the nesting site, 
did the fearless mother flutter off her nest to face a water- 
snake. No sooner had the bird hopped off her nest, than the 
snake took a strike at the eggs. As a result of his eager 
anxiety to snatch one, he got a peck in the face by the angry 

The continual harsh protesting squawks and commotion 
of the female brought her mate flying to the rescue. The 
two Redwings, both being the size of a Robin, took him in 
hand very well. Pecking at his head and beating him off 
with wings, they made the snake feel so disgraced that he 
cowardly turned around and slithered back into the water. 

The two warriors followed the watersnake in the air a 
few feet above the lake, then calmly regained their positions. 
The male lit on the same branch of the willow and sang his 
sweet gurgling song, while the female flew back to the nest 
to tend her eggs. 

As if nothing had happened, these two birds continued 
to do their chosen duty still remaining the keepers of the

Unc' Billy Possum was thinking. Yes Sir, he was think- 
ing very hard as he sat in a little sunny glade of the forest. 
And he was thinking about his stomach. The more he 
thought about it the more he wanted something, but he 
didn't know what he wanted. 

Suddenly he exclaimed, "I know what I want. I want 
an egg from Farmer Brown's hen house." Immediately he 


jumped up, and ambled toward Farmer Brown's hen house. 
Ten minutes later Unc' Billy was skirting the hen house 
looking for an opening. At last he found one and squeezed 
in. There, sitting on the roost, were several old hens, but 
otherwise the hen house was empty. He did not care for 
these when there were fresh eggs to be found, so he jumped 
up to the nests and greedily began to eat his share. Suddenly 
there was a click behind him and in walked Farmer Brown. 
This was once Unc' Billy was caught in the act.

One sunny day, three mice were walking along a wheat 
field in southern Saskatchewan. And one of them said, "I 
hear a horrible noise." 

The second mouse said, "It can't be thunder because 
the sun is shining." 

The third mouse said, "It might be the combine, and 
if it is, it will crush us to death." 

So the mice ran and ran. While the noise was getting 
closer and closer, one of the mice looked up into the sky 
and saw a big hawk swooping down on them. The mouse 
said, "Run! Run! for your lives, a hawk is swooping down 
on us!" 

When the hawk was about three feet above the mice, 
a shot cracked in the distance and the hawk fell dead. As 
soon as the mice saw that the hawk was dead, they stopped 
and had a rest. And they all said, "That was a close call."

The leaves are back on the trees once more, 
The robins are singing again; 
And all these happenings bring to me, 
That lovely thought. Spring. 


Flowers are blooming, trilliums and violets, 
The grass is as green as the sea; 
When night has come and I go to bed, 
I dream of lovely Spring.

SCHOOL vs. RIDLEY at the Varsity Arena, March 5. Won 6-5 

The last game of the season against Ridley proved to 
be a thriller right from the start. Ridley showed a slight 
edge in the first period but the School played better hockey 
as the game went on and the score stood even until the last 
period. In the third period, Ridley forged ahead and led by 
two goals with five minutes of playing time left. T.C.S. pro- 
duced a magnificent spurt during the dying minutes of the 
game, sparked by Winnett who tied the score in the last 
minute. With about twenty seconds still to play, Hyland 
scored the winning goal on a pass from Dunlap. Final score, 
T.C.S. 6; Ridley 5. 


The following were awarded First Team Hockey Colours 
forfor the 1952 season: — W. A. H. Hyland (Co-Captain), A.

Inter-House Hockey 

The House game this year produced the best brand of 
hockey seen in any house game up to date and showed very 
clearly the immense effect the indoor rink is having on the 
game in the Jimior School. Orchard had a much weaker 
team than Rigby but put up a magnificent fight and never 
stopped trying until the final whistle had blown. Final score : 
Rigby 6; Orchard 1. 



The School visited St. Andrew's this year for our annual 
Gym. Competition. The competitors of both schools were 
very well matched and the final score stood at T.C.S. 1981 
points, S.A.C. 1945 points.

At the January meeting of the Governing Body Col. 
Langmuir resigned as Chairman and Mr. B. M. Osier was 
elected to succeed him. 

Fifteen years ago, Col. Langmuir became Secretary 
of the Governing Body; at that time the Secretary did the 
work of Chairman and Secretary combined, a Chairman 
being elected only for the meetings. It was not until Mr. 
G. B. Strathy was formally elected Chairman that the two 
offices became distinct. When Mr. Strathy resigned. Col. 
Langmuir was elected Chairman and once again he carried 
on the duties of both Chairman and Secretary until Mr. 
S. B. Saunders was elected Secretary. 

In all these years, as Secretary, as Chairman, and as 
both Chairman and Secretary, Col. Langmuir devoted him- 
self utterly to the good of the School; no one could have 
given more hours of his time or more conscientious atten- 
tion to the coimtless matters affecting the future of the 
School than Col, Langmuir, He it was who directed the 
clearing of the School's bonded indebtedness, and it was 
under his Chairmanship that the Memorial Fund was col- 
lected with which we built our new Chapel. During his 
term of office the School came through most difficult days 
to enjoy the best years of its history. The Peter Campbell 
Memorial Rink was built, the Hugh Russel Tuck building 
was erected, Petry House was reconstructed, the Hospital 
was rebuilt, the Farm House was completely restored, and 
an addition was built to the Junior School. 

These are welcome additions and changes to the physical 
assets of the School; in the more important multifarious 


questions affecting the well-being of the boys and masters 
Col. Langmuir's contribution to T.C.S. was far reaching 
and lasting. The great tradition of service to the School 
which Col. Langmuir and a number of others have fashioned 
will never be forgotten, for it is T.C.S. ; without it we should 
not be in existence. More than ever we shall need such 
whole-hearted and devoted assistance in the future and we 
are happy to know that we can count on it. 


On April 23, 1952, St. George's Day, the first meeting 
of the Governing Body ever to be held in Montreal took 
place in the board room of the Royal Trust Company. 
Twenty-three Governors of the School were present from 
Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, London, and the in- 
novation, long planned, was an unqualified success. Before 
the meeting the Montreal Governors entertained the visitors 
to lunch at the Montreal Club and after the meeting there 
was a tea at the Mount Royal Club for the Members of the 
Board and their wives. 

The visiting Governors feel deeply grateful to their 
hosts for their most kind hospitality and the trouble they 
took to make all the arrangements which were planned per- 
fectly. The Chairman, Mr. B. M. Osier, and the Secretary, 
Mr. S. B. Saunders, also, of course, deserve much praise for 
arranging this meeting. 


During their visit to Montreal for the Governing Body 
and Ladies' Guild meetings, the Headmaster and Mrs. Ket- 
chum were entertained royally; Mrs. Slater threw open her 
house for the Guild meeting, Mrs. Garnet Strong entertained 
at luncheon before the meetings, Colonel Garnet Strong had 
a luncheon for Mr. Ketchum, the Guild entertained at tea 
after the meeting, and Mr. Henry Morgan and Mr. R, P. 
Jellett gave dinner parties. 



After more than a year of consideration, the Governing 
Body has decided to appeal for a fund which will be used 
to keep the School in a sound position, Mr. Charles Burns 
has once again most nobly taken on the task of co-ordinating 
the activities as Chairman, Mr. N. O. Seagram is in charge 
of the Toronto committee and Mr. Dudley Dawson is Chair- 
man of the Montreal group. 

As everyone knows who is in close touch with the School, 
the present extremely high level of operating costs makes 
it impossible to put aside any funds for much needed re- 
modelling, for the building of any houses for masters, or 
indeed for some of the renewals to the buildings which are 
most necessary. 

A brief statement of the School's record and objectives 
has been prepared; it will be circulated widely. The Head- 
master has also prepared a memorandum containing details 
and statistics of the present School. 

It is hoped that all Old Boys and Friends who want to 
see T.C.S. continue to flourish as a leading independent 
school will find it possible to make contributions to this fund, 
either annually for a number of years, or in one amount. All 
other appeals have been discontinued; Old Boys' bursaries 
will be maintained from the invested funds and it is hoped 
there will be additional grants from the new fund if the 
campaign is a success. 

Old Boys and others who have been most generous in 
the past are now being urged to respond again to this appeal, 
but there are many others who have said they would be glad 
to help the School maintain its position and rise to new 
heights by the provision of such assistance. 


T.C.S. Old Boys have continued to play a prominent 
part in Canadian squash during the year. In the Intercol- 
legiate matches Rick Gaunt ('44-'48) played number one for 


Back Row (l^ft tori ht) J D Hylton (Mgr.) J. Polak, L T. H. C. Adamson.

H. A. MORROW ('81-'83) 

H. A. Morrow of Peterborough, one of our senior Old 
Boys and a leading construction engineer, died on April 1st 
after a long illness. For more than twenty-five years Harold 
Morrow was in charge of one huge construction programme 
after another including most of the immense power develop- 
ment undertakings in Ontario such as Chats Falls, the Abi- 
tibi, Red Lake, Smooth Rock Falls, Spruce Falls, Grand 
Falls, etc. 

Mr. Morrow was a grandson of one of the pioneers in 
Peterborough, Oughtrey Morrow, and he and his father were 
generous benefactors of the town and city. From T.C.S. he 
went on to R.M.C. where he received his instruction in en- 
gineering. From 1889 until 1908 he assisted in the construc- 
tions of canals and bridges, and he then organized the firm 
of Morrow and Beatty, construction engineers. Undoubtedly 
his new firm, by constructing most of the great hydro-elec- 
tric installations in the first third of this century, laid the 
foundation for the industrial growth of Ontario. 


In 1938, Mr. Morrow gave the present Exhibition Park 
to the City of Peterborough in memory of his father. He was 
always interested in his old school and gave generously to 
the debt retirement campaign and the Memorial Fund. 

For seventy-seven years Harold Morrow lived in the 
family home "Clonsilla;" his death removes one of the prin- 
cipal pillars of the community and indeed of the construc- 
tion industry of this country. Our sympathy goes out to 
his family in their loss.

We of the Sixth Form who are leaving this year are 
very often reminded that we are expected to do well in the 
world we are entering. We are told to face up to the prob- 
lems of our nation and to help to solve them. Unfortunately, 
the majority of these exhortations end there, without en- 
larging to any extent on the problems that we have been 
urged to solve. For this reason, we feel that it might be 
helpful to discuss one of the more important of these prob- 
lems, the threat of communism to the youth of Canada. 

Communism is in sports terminology a "Triple Threat" 
player. It is a religion, an economic system, and a political 
theory. Also, there is no doubt that it has a special appeal 
to the youth of the world, and this can be considered a 
fourth threat to our way of life. The communists realize 


that the youth of a nation will soon be in control of the 
country, and that it is much easier to convince a boy than 
it would be to sway his father. Often a boy sees that the 
world in which he lives is confused, and that nobody seems 
to have an answer to right the confusion. He is unable to 
have faith in the beliefs of his fellowmen because he has 
not yet developed the foresight that would show him the 
true course of democracy. Hence, all too frequently, he turns 
to something else — comm(Unism. Communists make every 
effort to infiltrate at this undecided period of a maturing 
mind, and although it is not so obvious in this country, it is 
much more so in European countries. Clemenceau, when he 
was Prime Minister of France, learnt one day that his son 
had become a communist. He replied, "If my son was not a 
communist at twenty I would disown him; if he is still a 
communist at forty, I will do it then." An exaggerated 
statement, perhaps, but it serves to show how a mature 
mind benefits from wisdom, where a less mature mind is 
unable to. 

During the years we have spent at Trinity we have 
become accustomed to take for granted that when an older 
man speaks to us, he is usually right in what he is saying. 
Whether it is the effect of the classroom or because we 
nearly always have had some of the best authorities speak- 
ing to us on various topics, the fact remains that we give 
too little thought to what we hear. Therefore, we would 
caution against being convinced by any seemingly sound 

Without doubt, there are good ideas in some of the basic 
principles of communism, but it is interesting to note that 
a communist's argument rarely mentions anything that has 
gone wrong with their system, whereas a democracy's 
strongest way of obtaining improvement is by publicly de- 
crying any wrong that is being committed. Blast at the 
other side, and keep quiet about your own, seems to be a 
communist's rule for discussion. 

Our appalling ignorance of communism is another factor 
working against us. To judge communism we must know 


communism, and very few* boys here have a working knowl- 
edge of communism. For example, the popular belief that 
the Russian people are on the verge of revolution is untrue. 
While communism has done a great deal for Russia in some 
fields, we must realize that the methods used in Russia, 
which had in 1917 just broken the yoke of czarist tyranny, 
do not apply to a modern western country. 

The Political Science Club here at the School has helped 
to alleviate this painful lack of knowledge, but we feel that 
in some ways boys who are leaving the School to face com- 
munism, should learn more of the history and theory of 
communism. We have to teach peace to a country which 
does not believe that she can live side by side with democ- 
racy, and we believe that if this preparation were given, 
the youth of Canada would be more properly equipped to 
meet communism. 

The August issue of the Record is really an orphan. 
It is the final event in the School year, and yet it is also the 
vista to another year. The last year has certainly been an 
unusually successful year. Not only have we had a record 
of four out of a possible five Little Big Four Championships 
in the sports of the School, but also a very admirable trend 
to take more time out for serious studying. The opening of 
the Memorial Chapel was certainly a great step in the 
School's history, and we offer deepest gratitude to the men 
who organized the building campaign. The School has given 
all of us who are leaving a wonderful life, no matter how 
short or long a time we have spent here, and the sense of 
indebtedness is far too sincere for us to try to express it 
in the mere black and white words of an editorial. 

The editors would like to thank the staff of the Record 
for the work they have put into producing this year's issues 
of the magazine. They have worked hard and made the 
editors' job much easier. We apologize to the subscribers 
for not issuing two of the Records on time due to printing 
difficulties, but we leave in full trust that next year's staff 
will not have to face such problems. 



On Sunday, April 27th, the Headmaster spoke to the 
School in chapel. He said that although we sing psalms 
every day in chapel, many of us do not know the origin or 
nature of them. 

Mr. Ketchum said he drew on a book by a Gterman 
scholar named Gunkel for much of his information. For 
sometimes the Psalms were regarded as being almost equal 
to the New Testament in importance — doubtless because of 
the religious fervour which they reflect. They were songs, 
originally known by heart, and later committed to writing. 
They were part of the worship of the People of Israel and 
spread beyond the sanctuary into the private dwellings, thus 
an individual added personal details. Such poetry is found 
in various parts of the Old Testament and in the literature 
of Egypt and Babylon. 

"There are many types of songs," said the Head, 
"hymns or songs of praise used at public thanksgiving, 
psalms of national lament sung at state funerals, and there 


were individual psalms of lamentation." Then Mr. Ketchum 
went on to give examples from some of the hymns. Nearly 
all festivals in the time of the ancient Hebrews were harvest 
or thanksgiving festivals at which many rituals were carried 
out. The sanctuary was decorated, and the people put on 
their finery. It was the hope of everybody to take part in 
these festivals. The themes of the psalms are not self- 
some time the Psalms were regarded as being almost equal 
these festivals. The themes of the hymns are zeal, awe, 

The Hebrews were optimistic as we learn from the 
nature of the psalms, and they were influenced by the 
Prophets. The psalms were sung by choirs, often with a 
solo, in which the soloist, like the writer, added his own 
feelings to the psalms. We learn that the psalms were adapt- 
ed from public worship to private devotion, a fellowship 
between God and His people. 

Mr. Ketchum mentioned that Psalm 139 in Robert 
Bridges' translation was sent to all T.C.S. Old Boys overseas 
in the last war. 

"If you remember some of the lines of these psalms," 
the Head said, "I am sure they will be a comfort to you in 
trouble, and an inspiration when you are perplexed or low 
in spirit." 


On May 4, we were privileged to have an address by 
Bishop Martin of Saskatchewan. The Bishop began his 
address by telling of his visit to an Indian school in his 
diocese, where he went for a confirmation service. He called 
attention to some of the names of our Indian friends, such 
as Moose-Hunter, Canoe-Maker, Crooked-Nose, and showed 
the names stood for a characteristic or trait that this family 
had assumed. Each name meant something and stood for 
something. Then Bishop Martin connected character with 
name. "When we name a thing or a people," he said, "such 
as communists, democrats, Buddhists, we recognize by this 
name the character and belief of these peoples. So when we 


call a person a Christian, we designate the character of that 
person. The name "Christian," derived from the name 
Christ, implies a believer and follower of Christ and His 
perfect example. So we as Christians must put ourselves into 
the proper character of the definition and name of the word 

In closing. Bishop Martin said that just as we stand 
up for our School so must we stand up for Christianity; if 
we do not, we defame ourselves as Christians. 


The sermon on May 11 was given by the Venerable 
Archdeacon F. J. Sawers, He said that it was a great joy 
to preach in the new chapel, and that he had asked the 
Headmaster about the six Old Boys who became Bishops: 
Archbishop Renison, Bishop Broughall, Archbishop Worrell, 
Bishop Brent, Bishop Anderson and Bishop DuMoulin. 

On these Bishops, the Archdeacon said that he 
considered Bishop Brent to be the greatest. Then the Arch- 
deacon quoted from Bishop Brent, who said, "The greatest 
lesson of life has been that one must accept the fact that 
one must have loyalty to a near Deity, maintenance of a 
fearless soul in the maze of common life, a steady cult of 
living faith in a loving God, and a jealous safeguard of inner 
peace which is the just heritage of a quiet conscience." 

Archdeacon Sawyers said that this was the utterance 
of a great soul and man who had a deep experience of life. 
Born in Newcastle, Bishop Brent's father was a parish 
priest. He graduated from Trinity College and became 
Bishop of the Philippines, then Bishop of Western New 

The speaker elaborated on Bishop Brent's message. He 
said that one must be keen on studies and the development 
of a spiritual life. If one is afraid, one cannot do well in 
sports. Man must go from strength to strength by perse- 
verance. An unquiet conscience is the result of having done 
something wrong for which one has not repented. 


In closing, the Archdeacon said that the essence of 
forgiveness is hke a cloud which is taken away to let the 
sun shine. 


The Rev. T. J. Finlay of Ottawa spoke in chapel on 
Sunday, May 18. He had just seen Vice Admliral Mainguy 
inspect our Cadet Corps and he told us that he recalled the 
Battle of the Atlantic which gave us victory over the Nazis. 
This was Battle of the Atlantic Sunday. 

He mentioned that he had recently been at Portsmouth 
on Navy Day and was most impressed by an old wooden 
ship resting in dry dock. She was H.M.S. Victory, Admiral 
Nelson's flag ship, and he told us that he thought of the 
adventure connected with her past. We would not have kept 
the vital sea lanes open in World War II if our adventurous 
sailors had not fought and died for us. 

Religion is also our adventure and religious men are 
adventurers. Being "a labourer together with God", is a 
great adventure and, as teamwork is the main story in our 
inspection, so it is in Christianity. 

There is blood on every worthwhile victory. Our Me- 
morial Chapel is stained by the blood of our Old Boys who 
gave their lives in the two world wars. We ourselves must 
make our sacrifice in the achievement of Christian victory. 


On Sunday, May 25, the Very Reverend C. E. Riley, 
Dean of Toronto, gave the sermon. He chose his text from 
the last six verses of St. Mark's Gospel, the key verse being 
"Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every 
creature." The Dean brought to mind the occasion which 
every Christian at this time in the Christian year should be 
thinking : the forty days after Jesus' resurrection. His ascen- 
sion and the meaning of Whitsuntide. The Dean told us 
that the windows in St. James' Cathedral, picture by picture, 


relate the Christian events from Jesus' day to the present. 
The beginning of the church by such stalwarts as Gregory 
and Augustine, the translation of the Bible by Bede and the 
Protestant Reformation were the stages through which 
our church has gone. There are many major events in the 
Christian year, but the Ascension and its message is very 
personal to us, Christmas and Easter are the two major 
festivals, but the Ascension message is the one most frankly 
laid before us. What is this message? It is very plain, 
"Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every 
creature and baptize in the name of the Father, the Son 
and the Holy Ghost." Here Jesus is calling to each of us 
to take up his cross, his victory and join the Christian army. 
To the disciples at Whitsuntide He gave the Holy Ghost; 
to us He gives this message for us to spread, that His su- 
preme sacrifice should be felt by all. So when Jesus ascended 
to the right hand of God, He left the carrying on of His 
church to every one of us. And so at this time we should 
look back at what we have not done and start to do our 
share in the Christian cause. Dean Riley terminated his 
sermon with this verse, "Go ye into all the world and preach 
the Gospel to every creature." 


Canon Stuart of St. Thomas' Church, Toronto, preached 
in chapel on June 1. His text was, "Know ye not that ye 
are in the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth 
in you." Canon Stuart spoke about the descending of the 
Holy Ghost to the apostles on Whitsunday. He said that 
now people were unaware of the Holy Ghost as a spirit, 
but considered it as the popular conception of a ghost. The 
Canon defined the word "Ghost" in the Greek language as 
meaning Breath, as in breathing. Therefore the Holy Ghost 
stands as the symbol of life. Canon Stuart said that the 
Holy Ghost is within us in the form of a conscience. One 
turns to his conscience in time of trouble. Thus when the 
apostles were endowed with the Holy Ghost they were forti- 



,-..--"., M 


.--. , ^ ;'•;■' *...>•-£> 








fied with a strong conscience which led them along the right 
paths. "In the creed," said Canon Stuart, "the phrase 'Lord 
and Giver of Love' describes the Holy Ghost as the essential 
portion of a human being, and those to whom the Holy 
Ghost is not revealed are doomed to a dull and meaningless 


On Trinity Sunday, June 8, the School celebrated its 
Memorial Service in the new Memorial Chapel and at the 
Memorial Cross. The processional was, "Rejoice, The Lord 
is King," and the choir also sang Healey Willan's "Nunc 
Dimittis", and the beautiful anthem, "The Souls of the 
Righteous Are in the Hands of God", composed by Sir George 
Elvy, The School was honoured with the presence of the 
Right Rev. F. R. Barry, D.S.O., M.A., D.D., Lord Bishop of 
Southwell, and he addressed the School after the anthem. 

Bishop Barry explained that Southwell is a sea town 
in the diocese of Nottinghamshire and he said that his home 
town is seldom known to those whom he meets during his 
tour of Canada. He then went on to say how lucky are those 
who have the good fortune to attend the School, in these 
wonderful and inspiring surroundings. We remember with 
pride, with sorrow, and with gratitude, those who have 
grown up and gone out from the School, and by their life 
and death, given with supreme generosity all they had for 
our community. 

We are fortunate in the tradition of the School, the 
tradition that moulds everyone who enters it, by outlook 
and day by day behaviour. The tradition which the church 
and boarding-school holds is not an obsolete, bourgeois sur- 
vival but it is something which instils steadfast leadership. 

"The education which this School gives," Bishop Barry 
said, "ranks along with the development of character which 
stems directly from the traditions of the School. The aim 
of the education of T.C.S. is to equip young men to live a 
life of self-respect and to become well instructed, useful, 
and efficient citizens." 


After the singing of the National Anthem, the School 
processed from the chapel to the Memorial Cross, where the 
rest of the memorial service was held. The choir sang "The 
Strife Is O'er", followed by the reading of names, the placing 
of the wreath by Mrs. B. M. Osier, and the commemorative 
silence, after which the trumpeters of the band sounded 
the Last Post and the choir sang the School hymn. Then 
prayers, benediction, and the Reveille by the band, followed 
by the blessing by the Lord Bishop, concluded the service. 

The School was greatly honoured in having Bishop 
Barry come and speak in the chapel. He was on a tour 
of Canada, and it is the first time that we have had a visit 
from a bishop active in his diocese in England. Bishop 
Barry is a distinguished scholar who became a tutor at 
King's College, London, and later at Cambridge. He has 
written several books, a total of sixteen publications in his 
career. For gallantry in the Balkans and the Middle East 
as a chaplain, he was awarded the D.S.O. during World 
War I. We are grateful to Bishop Barry for his most mem- 
orable visit. 


Previous choir notes have more or less covered in detail 
the special services at which the choir was called upon to 
perform since the commencement of the School year, with 
the exception of the Memorial Service on Trinity Sunday 
and the Leaving Service. 

The weather is usually most kind to us when services 
require out-of-door ceremonies, and this was no exception 
on both the above mentioned occasions. 

In the beautiful new chapel, the seating arrangements 
have blended to give dignity and impressiveness to the 
services, and particularly did this apply to the Memorial 
Service with music appropriate to this occasion. 


A setting by Healey Willan was used for the Nunc 
Dimittis consisting of both plainsong and harmony in pleas- 
ing contrast. This and the anthem which followed, "The 
Souls of the Righteous Are in the Hands of God" (Elvey), 
were sung with sincerity and obvious understanding of the 

The procession of choir, clergy, School and visitors in 
that order from the chapel to the Memorial Cross was most 
dignified and impressive. Then followed the remainder of 
the service. 

The choir was quite at its best for the Leaving Service 
and particularly in the anthem by Brewer. A soft prelude 
ushered in all voices for the opening phrase, "Prevent Us, 
O Lord, in all our doings." A crescendo led to a striking 
outburst, "That we may glorify thy Holy Name," the voices 
eventually returning to a softly modulated ending. 

At both the Memorial and Leaving Services the an- 
thems were sung from memory. 

Two quite outstanding items of the Leaving Service 
were the singing of the hymns, "Go Forth With God," with 
a text so particularly appropriate for the boys who were 
attending their last service in the chapel, and the well- 
known "Jerusalem," to Parry's setting with its broad style 
and gradual build-up of tone so suitable for massed voices. 
Microphones were placed in various parts of the chapel so 
that the service could be relayed to visitors sitting on the 

At the Sports Prize Giving on the evening before Speech 
Day, the choir boys were presented with pins kindly donated 
by Mr. B. M. Osier in recognition of their very useful and 
year-long contribution to the life of the School. Later, at 
the closing informal concert the choir sang the School songs 
in the Hall. 

The writer would like to express his grateful appre- 
ciation to all the choristers for the help and co-operation 
throughout a particularly busy year, especially mentioning 
their very hard work prior to the Chapel Consecration on 
October 21. 



It was only possible to have one rehearsal in the chapel 
during which we were assisted (?) by the electricians in- 
stalling the hghting system, several noisy fellows using 
hammers with great vigor in various parts of the building, 
and a small army of cleaners waiting impatiently for our 
final note. 

In spite of all this, the Consecration Service with its 
unusual ritual and incidental music, the several proces- 
sions, the crowded chapel, was an entirely happy and suc- 
cessful ceremony, which speaks volumes for the ability of 
young folk to rise to the occasion when circumstances de- 
mand. In closing, may we voice very grateful thanks to the 
choristers for their co-operation and help at all times, to 
the Chaplain for his assistance and encouragement, to Miss 
E. Wilkin, the choir-mother, to the Crucifers Watts, N. 
Seagram, Spencer and Wilding for preceding us with dignity 
in our chapel processions.

Dr. K. E. Ferrie has given the School the cricket ball 
used by his father in a match played in 1887 between the 
Gentlemen of Canada and the Gentlemen of Gloucester. Mr. 
Ferrie bowled out the celebrated W. G. Grace. We are going 
to mount the ball and put it in our Cricket Pavilion. 

Mr. Fairweather has sent a number of books and some 
of his old uniforms to the School; the latter will be most

HEAD BOY 1952 

This year's Head Boy, Rodney Anderson, has had a 
distinguished record at T.C.S. Since he entered the Junior 
School his averages in school work have only twice dropped 
below 85% and they have often been in the 90's. In addition 
to his regular course of study, he did well in Greek for two 
years, he plays the piano extremely well and he has con- 
tributed excellent poetry to the Record. This year, he has 
been Literary Editor of the Record, a leading member of 
the Political Science Club, a House Prefect, and probably 
the best debater. 

On Speech Day he won the Jubilee Exhibition in Mathe- 
matics, the Founder's Prize in Science, the Lieut.-Governor's 
Silver Medal in English, the Governor General's medal in 


Mathematics, a prize for poetry, the prize for Debating and 
Sixth Form prizes in French, R.K., and General Proficiency. 
He has had a very distinguished record at T.C.S. 

THE 1951 PLAN 

Eight boys this year have applied for Insurance Policies 
on the "1951 Plan," Although the number is not quite as 
large as last year, it is very likely that more will apply when 
they have been able to speak to their parents. 

These policies can be purchased at a low annual premium 
and the holder makes over all dividends to the School; if a 
sufficiently large number of policies are sold, over a period 
of ten or fifteen years, there would be a considerable annual 
income accruing from them. David Decker of the Imperial 
Life Assurance Company originated this plan and has given 
much time and thought to it. Any profit he might make out 
of it is also to be given to the School. 


J. D. Ross ('46-'49) has won the Prince of Wales Prize 
in Philosophy at McGill University, and the Moyse Travel- 
ling Fellowship in literary subjects. The Moyse Fellowship 
is for two years, and Jim is planning to enter Magdalene 
College, Oxford, next October. 

The School sends its congratulations to him. 


The Record would like to extend congratulations to 
John Gordon, who won an Air Cadet Flying Training Schol- 
arship. He will take his training at the Vancouver Flying 
Club in July. Upon successful completion of the course, 
Gordon will be awarded his Air Cadet Wings. 

Also, congratulations to Chris Spencer, who has been 
chosen for an Air Cadet Exchange visit. Along with 24 other 
cadets from across the Dominion, Chris will fly from Dorval 


to England at the end of July. While in the U.K., the group 
will tour R.A.F. installations and see the newest fighter 
and bomber aircraft. They will be entertained by the R.A.F. 
Air Cadets, and the Canadian group will have ample time 
to themselves to see the sights of England. They will fly 
back to Canada at the end of August. 


In April, the School saw a rare event take place, in the 
form of a shooting competition with Lakefield. Out of a 
possible 640, the final addition showed that T.C.S. had 546 
points, and Lakefield 459. Bill Thomas shot 75 for Trinity's 
best score, and Potter and Little with 64 each were the best 
for Lakefield. 


On May 23, Miss Marguerite Learning gave a much 
appreciated violin recital in the Hall. Miss Learning has 
appeared as guest soloist with the Buffalo Philharmonic 
and she has also won several scholarships at the Royal 
Conservatory in Toronto. 

Miss Learning played Handel's "Sonata in E major", 
the "Chanson- Arabe", Rimsky-Korsakov, and other selec- 
tions. Her most appreciated selection was "The Banjo and 
the Fiddle", which she repeated as one of her encores. 


On June 8, the School was visited by Admiral Rodney 
Scott. The Head introduced him to the School and spoke of 
his distinguished career in the Royal Navy. Speaking to the 
School at lunch, he drew a parallel between naval life and 
life at T.C.S. He said that he was going to say a word about 


the Navy, as he had forty-four years' experience with it. 
The Admiral said that naval life in war and peace creates 
the quality of discipline, and when one has "1300 men in a 
tin can," and sixty or seventy different techniques, discipline 
is essential. When in action, all the men are separated into 
small parties. This requires efficient and good leadership, 
for in times of trouble the young men look to their experi- 
enced leaders. 

From the beginning of term the weather was extremely 
good and April was the warmest and sunniest we have known 
for many years; there was no rain for over four weeks, but 
the showers came in May just in time to save the gardens. 

We have just learnt that Chris Spencer was chosen 
third of all those who applied for the R.C.A.F, Exchange 
visit to the United Kingdom; congratulations to him. He 
expects to leave at the end of July. 

The twenty-fourth of May rockets and fireworks were 
kept until the Old Boys' Reunion at the end of May. They 
made a good display, especially the rockets, and the evening 
was enlivened by several unofficial explosions, one of which 
reminded us of the days of Fred Topping. 

It is reported that Mr. Robertson-Fortay is heading 
for Korea after his visit to the Iceland ice cap. He and Eric 
Jackman are joining the British public schools' exploration 
society trip to Iceland. 

Mr. Peter Solly-Flood was asked by the Department of 
National Defence to take a responsible post in Ottawa. He 
had to give his decision the day after Speech Day and he 
found it impossible to decline. We are all going to miss 
him and his charming wife. 

Bob McDerment will go down in T.C.S. history as the 
Captain of championship teams in Football, Hockey and 


Cricket; he well deserved the honour and his skill and en- 
thusiasm often made the difference between victory and 
defeat. Other T.C.S. triple captains have included Wallace 
Duggan, Charles Burns and Peter Campbell. 

The Sixth Form were the first boys to use the basement 
of the Memorial Chapel when they wrote their Departmental 
exams there on three days before Speech Day. We hope to 
use this fine large room for an assembly hall and for films 
next term. 

It was a pleasure to have Archbishop and Mrs. Renison 
at the School for a few days, including Speech Day. Other 
distinguished visitors during the term included the Right 
Rev. F. R. Barry, Lord Bishop of Southwell, Dr. McKie, 
organist of Westminster Abbey, and Admiral Rodney Grant, 
R.N. The Lord Bishop of Huron and Mrs. Luxton and the 
Chief of the General Staff and Mrs. Simonds also came 
down for Speech Day. 

The new T.C.S. brooches have proved very popular with 
the boys; we suspect that many ladies are now wearing 
them. It is not generally known that T.C.S. instituted the 
plan of having the School crest put on many articles of 
silverware. It seems to be very general now. 

The first wedding in the Memorial Chapel will take 
place on August 23rd when Miss Mary McDerment is being 
married to Gordon Payne ('40-'47). The Chaplain is con- 
ducting the ceremony. 

More T.C.S. boys are on the staff of Camp Hurontario 
this summer than ever before. 

We were all glad to know that Mrs. Scott had recovered 
so well from her serious illness. 


Mr. and Mrs. Ted Parkins, the new Cricket Pro and 
his wife have been running the Tuck this term; Mr. Alf 
Pope left at the beginning of April to take a post in Scotland. 

It would seem as if it will be necessary to use the Lodge 
and the Hospital for overflow quarters next term. 

Mr. Batt well deserved the applause he got on In- 
spection Day when he was given the Canadian Efficiency 
Decoration. It is believed he is the only active service officer 
who has been continually on the pay list of the British or 
Canadian Army or Air Force for fifty years. 

The garden parties at the Lodge before Speech Day 
were much enjoyed by many boys. 

The singing of the Choir has occasioned favorable com- 
ment by many visitors to the Chapel services; the boys' 
voices sound exceptionally well in the Memorial Chapel. 

The School congratulates Dean Evans on being elected 
and installed Lord Bishop of Ontario. He is an old friend of 
T.C.S. and now that he is in Kingston we hope we may 
have many visits from him. 

The Sing Song and Singing Off on the night before 
Speech Day was cut short when some one rang the Tower 
bell and everyone reported for call over in the houses. It 
was an unfortunate end to a traditional ceremony. 

The crash landing of the Vampire Jet on the Sunday 
afternoon after Speech Day created excitement for several 
days. When it came down boys streamed across the fields 
and a few who were bicycling beside it were the first on the 
scene. The pilot was miraculously unhurt even though his 
plane bounced three times, once high enough to take high 
tension wires down, and went through a heavy stake fence. 
It bounced and skidded nearly a thousand yards from the 


place it first hit, just east of the School, until it came to a 
stop near the telephone road. Many mementos were col- 

"Knobby" Clark deserves the title of Chucker Out 
Extraordinary for his work on "Joey", who seemed anxious 
to attend one of the last Chapel services. 

The T.C.S. short wave receiving and sending station 
should be in operation next term. The placing of the an- 
tenna will not soon be forgotten, especially by the School's 
steeplejack who mercifully escaped most serious injury. 

The Editor of the Record and his staff deserve much 
praise for putting this issue together at a very busy time. 
We can remember years when very little material was left 
for the printer. They have brought out some extremely 
good issues this year and Crawford, as Editor, will long be 
remembered for his splendid work. 


The morning of May 17 dawned grey. The first rays of 
light saw a mass polishing of boots and buttons. It was 
Inspection Day. 

At 10.30 the band sounded the fall-in, and the squadron 
advanced to position to await the arrival of Vice Admiral 
E. Rollo Mainguy, Chief of the Naval Staff, and inspecting 
officer of the day. Shortly afterward, accompanied by the 
Headmaster and Air Commodore Brown, he approached the 
saluting base and took the general salute. Following the 
inspection of the squadron and the band, the Admiral once 
again took his position on the saluting base for the march- 
past. Under the command of Squadron Leader Hugh Watts, 
the squadron marched past in both column and close column, 
and then in review order with excellent precision. The gen- 
eral salute and march-past in column of route preceded the 
advance in close column of flights and reforming into posi- 


tion for House Drill. Before the drill competition began, 
however, a formation of two jets manouvered over the 
campus for a few minutes. 

Brent House, with Adjutant Clark in command, per- 
formed first. Leading their respective flights were Flight 
Lieutenants Crawford and Seagram, and W.0.1 Muntz. The 
rifle, flight, and squadron drills were carried out with very 
few mistakes, and the general appearance of the house was 

Bethune House then took the field led by Flight Lieu- 
tenant Jim Dolph. In respect to marching and comm^ands, 
they had a slight edge over Brent, and received enthusiastic 
applause from the spectators. Leading their flights were 
W.0.2 Wilding, and Phillips, and Fit. Sgt. Hendrie. 

Judging was based on merit in marching, reaction to 
commands, appearance, and general conduct. Brent House, 
defender of the trophy, won with a margin of .5 points. 
Admiral Mainguy presented the cup to Clark with his com- 
pliments, and congratulated Dolph on the fine appearance 
given by Bethune. 

Squadron Leader Batt became, in all probability, the 
only person in the Empire to hold both the Long Service 
and Canadian Army Efficiency Decoration when Air Com- 
modore Brown presented him with the latter decoration 
following the taking of the squadron photograph. The cita- 
tion referred to fifty years' service with Her Majesty's 
armed forces. 

Mr. Batt enhsted with the Royal Fusiliers in 1902, 
serving as a Captain under such illustrious British military 
leaders as Lord Roberts and Kitchener. In 1917, as a ser- 
geant-major of the army gym staff, he became an instructor 
at Royal Military College. He came to T.C.S. in 1921, and 
when the Cadet Corps switcjied to the Air Force, he was 
made a Squadron Leader in 1949. Decorations received by 
Squadron Leader Batt prior to the Efficiency Decoration are 
the General Service, the Victory and Long Service, and Good 
Conduct Medals.

For the pleasure of those who lunched in the Hall, the 
Trenton R.C.A.F. band played a varied program, of music 
in the gallery. This band, now famous across Canada, took 
part in the reception for the Queen, when she visited Tren- 
ton as Princess Elizabeth. 

During the afternoon the gymnasium was crowded, as 
exhibitions of high-bar, vaulting horse, and parallel-bar 
gymnastics were presented under the direction of Mr, Batt. 
The Junior School, trained by Mr. Armstrong, put on an 
impressive show of club-swinging, and other exercises, and 
the Senior School physical training class, followed by a 
tableau representing a round wall with two men on horse- 
back at the front gates and a tower in the middle, concluded 
the program. 

In introducing Vice Admiral Mainguy, the Headmaster 
spoke of his career which he began as a midshipman on the 
battleship "Canada" in World War I. Referring to Battle 
of the Atlantic Sunday, which was to be celebrated the next 
day, Mr. Ketchum said that it was fitting that we should 
greet an outstanding member of the senior service which 
contributed so much to victory in that great struggle. 

The Vice Admiral began his address by considering the 
reasons for the existence of private schools. Many people, 
he said, are under the impression that parents send their 
children to such institutions to "get rid of them." "How- 
ever, the fact that private school life teaches the art of 
living in an intimate community: that comradeship, disci- 
pline, leadership, hardiness and team spirit are results of its 
influence: that loyalty to and pride in an institution is pro- 
duced, is enough to assure parents that they are 'getting 
their money's worth'." 

The Vice Admiral pointed out that although the T.C.S. 
Squadron has compulsory enhstment and the cadets are 
"conscripts" not "volunteers", under the leadership of "that 
excellent man. Squadron Leader Batt," it is "the finest cadet 
corps in the country." Special tribute was paid by Vice 
Admiral Mainguy to W.0.2 McCaughey and the band for 
their "distinguished performance" during the course of the 


Vice Admiral Mainguy concluded his address by re- 
questing a whole holiday for the School. He then received 
three reverberating cheers from the boys. 

For the first time in history an Inspection Day dance 
provided an enjoyable evening for visitors of the fair sex, 
masters and students. While the R.C.A.F. "Jetliners" played 
in a gaily (and rapidly) decorated gymnasium, tired but still 
enthusiastic feet forgot the long hours of drill, and danced 
a most successful day away into memory. 


On the Friday evening before Speech Day, a large crowd 
of parents gathered on the terrace for the athletic prize 
giving. After they had examined the trophies that their sons 
had won, the guests and the School proceeded to the Hall 
where Mr. Prower was the master of ceremonies for an 
informal concert. The choir opened with the School song, 
and then Mr. Prower played the Warsaw Concerto. Norman 
Seagram rendered his own piano composition, and a very 
unrehearsed group of senior school boys sang several pop- 
ular songs. The choir also sang two more School songs, and 
the evening ended with the senior members of the choir 
singing the leaving song. 


Our eighty-seventh Speech Day was held on Saturday, 
June 14. Archbishop Renison, Metropolitan of Ontario, 
Bishop Luxton, and the Reverend C. H. Boulden were present 
at the leaving service held at eleven o'clock. Our Memorial 
Chapel was completely filled by visitors and it was necessary 
to put several rows of chairs and a loud speaker on the 
terrace so that everyone might take part in the service. 
The choir processional was "Praise to the Lord, the Al- 
mighty, the King of Creation". The choir led the School 
in two very well sung psalms, "The Lord is my Shepherd", 
and "O Praise God in His Holiness". Anderson read the 


lesson, and the choir sang the stirring anthem, "Prevent 
Us, O Lord". After the prayers and the benediction the 
choir recessed, singing the School leaving hymn, "And Now 
With Thanksgiving". 

When the visitors had been seated in the gym, Mr. B. M. 
Osier called upon the Headmaster for his report, after 
which he introduced Mr. M. W. MacKenzie ('21-'24), our 
distinguished guest, recently retired Deputy Minister of 
Defence Production, and asked him to address the School. 
Mr. MacKenzie delivered a very interesting and effective 
speech, after which the awarding of prizes took place. The 
proceedings were closed with the singing of the School song, 
and the National Anthem, and the benediction was pro- 
nounced by Archbishop Renison. 


Mr. Chairman, Your Grace, my Lord Bishop, Mr. Mackenzie, 
Ladies and Gentlemen: 

On behalf of the School, I welcome you most sincerely 
to our eighty-seventh Speech Day. This is the day on which, 
like Janus, we look behind and look ahead ; we try to tie the 
School year up and we try to give the boys who are leaving 
some advice about the best road to take from here, in order 
to reach their destinations. Many of us have travelled con- 
siderable distances on various types of roads and we would 
willingly repeat some of our journey and perhaps recom- 
mend a detour around other parts. 

It is such a pleasure to have the new Metropolitan of 
Ontario and Mrs. Renison with us again. Few men anywhere 
have done more for their country by long years of devoted 
service in every part of this broad land, and no man has 
ever endeared himself more deeply in the hearts of the 
thousands who have known him. It is just sixty years ago 
that Archbishop Renison was Head Boy of T.C.S. ; he was 
then plain Bob Renison, son of a missionary in the remote 
Nipigon country, and going out to T.C.S. was, he has said, 
like going to a new world. From what I have heard from 


other boys of that period, however, the pioneering spirit 
was necessary here as well as in the Nipigon if one was 
going to survive. Bob Renison did not just survive, he began 
a career which in so many ways has been unparalleled; I 
shall not attempt even to outline it, and in any case I know 
he is going to add much more to it. May I simply say that 
it warms our hearts to have him and Mrs. Renison here 
today and we are full of pride at the new honour which has 
been bestowed upon him. 

Last January, Col. Langmuir resigned as Chairman of 
the Governing Body because of his leaving Toronto to live 
in Brockville. For fifteen years he has acted as Secretary, 
as Chairman and Secretary, and as Chairman alone; during 
those years Col. Langmuir kept the welfare of the School 
constantly in his mind and devoted himself utterly to it. 
He directed the clearing off of the School's bonded indebt- 
edness; it was during his term of office as Secretary or as 
Chairman that Petry House was reconstructed, the Hospital 
completely rebuilt, the Farm House remodelled and re- 
newed; the Peter Campbell Memorial Rink was built, the 
Hugh Russel Tuck was erected, and the Memorial Fund 
was collected with which our Memorial Chapel was built. In 
so many other personal ways Col. Langmuir was a constant 
help to the School, and never once in his busy life did he 
fail to make time for School business, always so gladly and 
cheerfully. At a later date we shall be giving him a more 
tangible expression of our gratitude; at present we can only 
repeat that we shall never forget all he has done for T.C.S. 
and we shall ever be indebted to him. 

May I now publicly welcome our new Chairman, Mr. 
Mr. B. M. Osier, and thank him most sincerely for adding 
these new responsibilities to an already full life; the name 
of Osier and the name of T.C.S. seem to be synonymous and 
we know that Mr. B, M. Osier is carrying on well that great 
tradition of service to education and the community which 
his father and forebears so nobly discharged. 

Old Boys have before now given the address on Speech 
Day, but never have we been privileged, I feel sure, to wel- 


come one so young and brilliant, or one who has rendered 
such signal service to our Government, Mr. Max Mackenzie's 
father and all his uncles made such renowned careers for 
themselves that the Mackenzie family will always be known 
as one of Canada's most famous; our speaker to-day has 
already, at an early age, added lustre to that reputation. 
Leaving T.C.S. in 1924 he attended McGill University and 
then became a chartered accountant. He had not been prac- 
tising his profession long before he was asked in 1939 to 
join the staff of the Foreign Exchange Control Board in 
Ottawa, In 1942 he was again selected for promotion and 
he became Chief of Supply in the Wartime Prices and Trade 
Board. Less than two years later he was appointed Deputy 
Chairman, The Government then appointed him a member 
of the Royal Commission on Taxation and on March 1st, 
1945, he was promoted to be Deputy Minister of the De- 
partment of Trade and Commerce, So well did he carry out 
his duties that another heavy responsibility was given to 
him, that of Deputy Minister of the Department of Recon- 
struction and Supply, And a little over a year ago he was 
named Deputy Minister of the Department of Defence Pro- 
duction, a vitally important post. 

For five years, too, he served as President of the Board 
of Directors of the Canadian Commercial Corporation, a 
Crown Company, Now, after thirteen years of most valuable 
service to the Government and the country, Mr. Mackenzie 
has been prevailed upon to take charge of an industry which 
will, under his direction, develop further the natural re- 
sources of this country and give employment and new 
wealth to many of our people. The Prime Minister, a few 
weeks ago, spoke of "the splendid service Mr. Mackenzie has 
rendered to the Government," and thanked him publicly for 
it; after the war. His Majesty the King created him a Com- 
panion of St. Michael and St. George. We congratulate Max 
Mackenzie on the important part he has played in directing 
the country's affairs during a very critical time, and we 
welcome him as a distinguished young Old Boy, and as a 
very charming and brilliant man. 


This has been such a very full and happy School year 
that I can give only the sketchiest of outlines of it, or I 
would keep you far too long. 

The Consecration of our Memorial Chapel was, of course, 
the memorable event of the Michaelmas Term. We were 
honoured in having so many people here for the occasion 
and particularly privileged to welcome Lord and Lady 
Alexander, the Right Hon. Vincent Massey, three Bishops 
of the Church, two of them Old Boys, Archbishop Renison 
and Bishop Broughall, President Sidney Smith, Provost 
Seeley and nearly all our Governors. The Chapel has, since 
then, proved an inspiration to very many of us and to such 
a large number of visitors. We shall ever be full of grati- 
tude to those who made the building of it possible. 

Then the whole School was invited to the Trenton Air 
Force Station for the Royal visit, and the present Queen 
sent the School a very gracious radio message when she 
left Canada. She knew of us because a cousin and a close 
friend had been boys here. 

The death of His Majesty the King early in the New 
Year shocked all of us, and a Memorial Service was held in 
our new Chapel. May I say here how very well the Choir 
has sung throughout the year. There have been more spe- 
cial events than perhaps ever before and they have been called 
upon to practice long hours but they have responded will- 
ingly and well; by their excellent singing they have set a 
high standard and added so much to the beauty of the 
services during this first year in our Memorial Chapel. We 
are indebted to them and to Mr. Cohu, the Choirmaster. 

Dr. Healey Willan brought his Choir from Toronto and 
they gave a magnificent recital of Tudor music in the Chapel. 

Another excellent play was given under the direction 
of Mr. Dale and the leading parts were extremely well acted. 

The Lord Bishop of Huron conducted the service of 
Confirmation at the end of last term and his address will 
long be remembered by all who heard it. 

Inspection Day was another notable occasion; there 
were more visitors than ever before and all seemed to agree 


that the boys set a new high mark for efficiency. The Cadet 
Officers, with Watts and McDerment taking the lead, Mr. 
Batt and Mr. Armstrong, well deserve all the compliments 
they have received. Admiral Mainguy took the salute and 
in the past three years we have had the chiefs of the three 
services here to inspect the Corps. 

Last summer, four of our boys won flying training 
Scholarships and received their wings after a period of 
training. I feel that the air age has really arrived at T.C.S. 
for two of these four have been here this year and, with 
their parents' permission, they have soared above our heads 
quite often. In fact, last Sunday one of them flew off with 
the Headmaster's daughter, a modern Lochinvar with a 
winged steed — Pegasus — ^but this time the daughter was 
returned intact. 

C. O. Spencer has this year won an exchange visit to 
the United Kingdom and Europe as an Air Cadet and he 
will be abroad for several weeks this summer. J. R. M. 
Gordon has won a flying training Scholarship. 

For the first time the School has won the Cochrane 
£!up, given to the institution which qualifies most candi- 
dates for Life-Saving awards. 

We have become more social than usual this year and 
held two dances: the regular School Dance in the Easter 
holidays was a great success, despite an alarming hitch at 
the beginning, and the boys deserve much credit for their 
wonderful decorations. On the night of Inspection Day an- 
other dance was held, the Air Force supplying an exception- 
ally good orchestra. 

The Old Boys spent a week-end at the School at the 
end of May and the innovation in the date seemed to be an 
unqualified success. Several cricket matches were played 
including an Old Boy Fathers versus their own sons now at 
the School — and the Fathers came out on top by the special 
method of reckoning known as the Seagram patented score. 
There have also been very successful gatherings of Old Boys 
in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa and Calgary; we are always 


encouraged and strengthened by the keen interest these 
Old Boys show in the School and the help they give us. 

Again many generous gifts have been made to the 
School. I have listed most of these in a leaflet which has 
been widely circulated, but I want to mention now the Bur- 
saries so kindly given by the Toronto and Montreal Guilds, 
by Mrs. Willa Gundy, Mrs. R. C. Matthews, Mr. Winnet 
Boyd, and the Old Boys; also those recently founded by 
Col. Ewart Osborne and Mrs. Scholfield. They have made 
it possible for many excellent boys to enter or remain at 
the School in these days of high costs, and we are deeply 
grateful to the donors. 

Our Sustaining Fund has got off to a good start; we 
always seem to be asking for something, but it has been 
wisely said that a School of this nature, not supported by 
any public funds, must be stagnant, or charging far too 
much unless it is always in need of help. We have probably, 
over the years, given more financial aid to good boys, in 
proportion to our numbers, than any similar foundation on 
this continent. Partly for that reason we are not well off 
in dollars and cents but we feel we have enriched the country 
by sending out many first-rate boys. Mr. Charles Burns has 
nobly taken on, once again, the task of being General Chair- 
man of this Fund; Mr. N. O. Seagram is in Charge of the 
Toronto Committee and Mr. Dudley Dawson of the Montreal 
Committee. They tell me that already voluntary subscrip- 
tions have been received which give them and us much 
hope for full succees. We trust that at this time next year 
it may be possible to report that T.C.S. has once again gone 
over the top and obtained a fund which will enable us to 
keep the School in a sound condition. 

I have said nothing about academic work or athletics, 
usually considered a fairly important part of our life. The 
Upper School candidates last year passed ninety-five per 
cent of the papers attempted and 65% were honour papers, 
51% being 1st and 2nd class honours, equally divided. You 
will see from your Speech Day programme that Slater, our 
Head Boy last year, won the coveted Sir Edward Beatty 


Scholarship in Classics at McGill and qualified for two other 

Our Old Boys continue to win triumphs at different 
Universities. C. M. Taylor of McGill and R. L. Watts of 
Trinity College, Toronto, were awarded Rhodes Scholarships 
from Quebec and Ontario respectively. The winning of a 
Rhodes Scholarship is probably the heartfelt ambition of 
every top scholar and all-round student; Taylor and Watts 
had distinguished careers here and continued to add to their 
laurels throughout their University courses. We congratu- 
late them most sincerely. T.C.S. boys have now won five 
Rhodes Scholarships in five years, a truly remarkabale 
accomplishment. Many other Old Boys, who are now scat- 
tered over thirty different Universities, have brought 
honour to themselves and their School by winning high 
honours, medals and scholarships; we are very proud of 
them. One hundred and eighteen University Scholarships 
have been won by T.C.S. boys in eighteen years. 

In our Entrance and Scholarship Examinations, P. F. 
M. Saegert of the Junior School won the Oswald Rigby 
Memorial Scholarship and F. B. Saksena of Mill Hill School, 
London, won an exhibition. T. I. A. Allen of London, On- 
tario, won the Old Boys Scholarship for entrance to the 
Junior School, writing particularly good papers, and H. B. 
Snell of Toronto won the Old Boys No. 2 Scholarship. 

One cannot mention the work of our boys without pay- 
ing tribute to all members of the Staff, senior and junior, 
who give so much of themselves to help the lads overcome 
their problems, to lead them into new fields, and to awaken 
a deep love of learning. All T.C.S. people owe them a debt 
of gratitude. 

I am very sorry to say that Mr. Archbold is leaving 
us for postgraduate work at the University of Cincinnati 
where he has won a fellowship, and Mr. Robertson-Fortay, 
who has so well set up our Department of Geography, is 
leaving to do further study in Europe. We thank them for 
all they have done here and wish them well. Mr. Tony 
Prower has been a part-time music master in the Senior 


School this year and may be able to give us more time next 
year. Interest in music is growing with his help. Mr. Ed- 
ward Cayley has been awarded a Carnegie Scholarship at 
the McGill Summer School of Geography and last year he 
was named the best student at the School. Last summer 
Mrs. Crowe, the dietitian in the Junior School, left to be 
with her son in London; we have missed her cheerful pres- 
ence and all she contributed to the general life of the Junior 

Miss Gregory, the Secretary for ten years, left in the 
autumn as her mother was alone in Toronto. Miss Gregory 
Was so meticulous and painstaking, so calm and willing, 
that the work miust have become a heavy burden for her, 
though she never gave a sign of it. She had come to know 
so well how the wheels of School life turned that we just 
took it for granted that many jobs would be foreseen and 
duly completed. We shall always be indebted to her. We 
welcome Mrs. Mulholland in her place; she has taken hold 
in a most efficient and helpful way. May I, at this point, 
say a word of thanks to Mrs. Stephenson, the Matron in the 
Junior School. If a Mother were to set down all the talents 
which an ideal matron of a Junior School should have then 
I think she would draw an accurate picture of Mrs. Stephen- 
son. We could not say more — she is simply invaluable. 

A word about our Athletic accomplishments. Most of 
you know that our Football Team repeated the triumph of 
1950 and won the Little Big Four Championship for the 
second year in a row. Mr. Hodgetts and the members of the 
team deserve much praise; the boys played extremely well 
and with Watts, McDerment and Muntz to lead them, they 
nearly always showed real championship form. T.C.S, foot- 
ball teams have only six times in over fifty years won the 
championship, and two of those teams have been coached 
by Mr. Hodgetts. When one recalls that Mr. Hodgetts is 
certainly one of the very best teachers of History in the 
Province and that he is without doubt an athletic coach par 
excellence, one can imagine how valuable he is to T.C.S. He 
coached the Swimming Team to a second Championship this 


year; last year he coached a town hockey team to a Cham- 
pionship, and some years ago he had a Championship 
Basketball team. 

The Hockey Team, under Mr. Humble, with Bob Mc- 
Derment captain, came out at the top of the Little Big Four 
Schools; the Squash team won the Championship, coached 
by Mr. Landry and captained by Norman Seagram; the 
Gym team was one of the best and our captain, Peter Phip- 
pen, won the Eastern Canada Junior Championship, a re- 
nowned feat. The Cricket team came first, tied with S.A.C. 
and Ridley for the Championship, retaining in a triangular 
form the undisputed laurels they won last year. Soccer, 
skiing and basketball have been carried on enthusiastically 
and well. McDerment was co-captain of the Championship 
Football team, captain of a winning Hockey team, and of the 
Cricket team tied for a Championship. I believe it is the 
first time in our history that one boy has captained three 
championship teams in major sports. We congratulate him. 

We are going to miss very deeply the senior boys who 
are leaving us this year. They have set a splendid example 
to the rest of the School, showing that work and play can 
be carried on together, that self discipline is better than 
domination, giving direction better than barking orders, yet 
always taking the lead and showing initiative and enter- 
prise. Withal, there has been a fine family spirit of co- 
operation deepened by an awareness of spiritual values and 
true religion. It has been said that a Church School is not 
just one which teaches Religious Knowledge or requires 
Chapel attendance but one which is, year by year, becoming 
more a community of Christian friends with the vital pur- 
pose of making the world a little better for our having been. 
I like to think that T.C.S. is steadily progressing in that 
respect ; certainly no School could fail to be the better which 
can count as members of its family such senior boys as we 
have had here this year. May they continue to lead normal, 
healthy, balanced lives, not blown about by every wind of 
doctrine, by every professor's pet hobby, or by the gale of 
words which seems to be lashing everyone who shows any 


interest in education. They will know that work is the 
master word, as Sir William Osier always used to say, and 
that belief in spiritual values and ideals is the master in- 
centive to true greatness. 

May all be well with them. 

C.M.G., B.Com. 

There are not many Old Boys who have the good luck 
to return to their School in the way I am doing today. I 
was honoured by the invitation to be here; gratified, though 
somewhat embarrassed by the nice things you have said 
about me, Mr. Headmaster; and particularly proud to be an 
Old Boy when I see the group that makes up the School 

But I am glad to be an Old Boy for another reason too 
— I am here not just as a speaker on Speech Day, who, it 
seems to me, has several things in common with a bride- 
groom at a wedding — in both cases there has to be one, and 
he has to make a speech, yet he is very much mistaken if he 
thinks he is the most important person present. I remember 
vividly hundreds of things about my three years at Port 
Hope — things that were part of the school life and that are 
properly recorded — a football game in which the School was 
beaten by about 75 to nothing — that, I think, must have 
been a record — the pancake toss, the cadet inspection, the 
dedication of the Memorial Cross, the chapel services, a 
Gilbert and Sullivan operetta — as well as a number of 
escapades that I hope are not recorded — swimming at the 
old iron bridge, and on at least one occasion in Lake Ontario 
at four in the morning, and taking a picture through a key- 
hole of the then Headmaster -having his hair cut. I can re- 
member hundreds of these things, but for the life of me I 
can't remember anything that was said by a speaker on 
Speech Day. I therefore have no illusions in approaching 
my task, but I am none the less going to try to engage your 
attention for a few moments. 


I wonder what you lads are thinking about at this 
moment, apart from, hoping that I won't speak for too long. 
If you are moving on to college or for any other reason are 
not coming back you may be thinking over those particular 
occasions in your life here at school which you have en- 
joyed most; you may be thinking of the new and different 
life you will lead at college, or wherever you may be headed; 
you may be thinking of your summer plans, or what you are 
going to do with the money you will earn if you are taking 
a job. You lads who are coming back may have plans for 
next year at school — the teams you hope to make — or per- 
haps if this is the end of your first year you are thinking 
of the fun it will be to have another group of new boys to. 
take your place. Some of you may even be thinking how 
nice it will be not to be awakened in the morning by that 
confounded bell. These and many other thoughts may be 
crowding your minds — and it is against all these pleasant 
things that I have to compete for your attention. I am going 
to try, however, to leave one thought with you. It is not 
new, but it is important, it is basic, it is fundamental, and 
it deals with a single proposition, but one that is sometimes 
forgotten — it is that Privilege and Obligation are insepar- 
able. Privilege and Obligation — these are two pretty com- 
mon words and I think you all know wTiat they mean, but 
I'd like you to think about them. 

I came to Port Hope, a good many years ago by your 
standards, though it doesn't seem so long ago to me. I was 
a very green and somewhat fat and chubby new boy. In a 
matter of minutes after my arrival I became aware of the 
meaning of the word "privileges". In those days the Sixth 
Form and the Prefects had privileges, and in no time flat I 
was carrying somebody else's bag, shining shoes, running 
errands, and generally making myself useful — not because 
I was a particularly kind-hearted soul, but because that was 
the system, and a good system it is too. I found out about 
privileges very quickly, but it took me a little longer to 
realize that the privileges the seniors and Prefects had were 
not only earned but that they carried with them some real 


obligations — obligations not to overdo it, obligations to keep 
in the minds of us small fry respect for the position of the 
seniors and the reputation of the School. But what I want 
to speak of today is Privilege and Obligation in a rather 
broader sense than just the particular meaning that the 
words have at T.C.S. and at other boarding Schools. 

A privilege is a right to benefit from an advantage that 
is not enjoyed by everybody. If you think a little bit about it, 
you will realize that a system of privileges for those who 
earn them is one of the fundamentals of our way of life. 
It is a good system, life as we know it, and it is based on 
privileges for those who earn them, or sometimes for those 
who are fortunate enough to be given the privileges first and 
who can hold them by demonstrating that they deserve 
them. But to enjoy privileges — to continue to hold them — 
the system demands that the related obligations be dis- 

Privileges are a necessary and proper part of our way 
of life and are, in themselves, a good thing — but only so 
long as the obligations that they carry with them are faith- 
fully carried out. There are, you know, some people in this 
world who shudder when the word 'privilege" is mentioned. 
The word has come to be regarded in certain quarters as the 
symbol of all that is bad in the world. People talk with a 
sneer of the privileged classes, of the "have's" and the "have 
not's". These views are often expressed by those who be- 
lieve that the world owes them a living, and that there is 
something wrong with a system that doesn't divide every- 
thing equally. Privileges are criticized, but the real trouble 
is what unfortunately happens too often — that the priv- 
ileged have forgotten their obligations . 

It doesn't matter whether you are talking about a 
family, a school, a business, a city, a country, or any other 
group — a system of privileges is necessary. Even the Rus- 
sians, who started out with the idea that everything should 
be divided equally, have found that privileges are a neces- 
sary part of their system. The privileges, of course, can't 
be unlimited, and furthermore can only be retained by the 


discharge of the related obligations. Privileges and obliga- 
tions can never be separated for long. Sonxetimes people try 
to separate them — sometimes they get away with it for a 
little while — but sooner or later trouble follows. 

You lads have many privileges — and again I say I don't 
mean only the seniors who get their shoes shined by new 
boys, as Pete Mulholland did by the exercise of my right 
arm. You are all, for example, privileged to be at this School 
— it is a privilege not enjoyed by everybody to anticipate 
summer plans that I suggested might be in your minds — 
but there is one privilege in particular that you all enjoy — 
the privilege of being Canadians. I include those of you 
whose families don't live in Canada, because we want to 
claim you as Canadians. You have lived with us for a while 
and have come to know Canadians and Canadian ways. 

The privilege of being a Canadian ! It is a real privilege. 
Canada is today the envy of the world — and for good rea- 
son. We are not only a young country, a growing country, 
a country rich in resources, a stable country — and I don't 
mean by that just that the Liberal Government has been in 
power for some seventeen years — I mean a country where 
the majority of people take the sound view on the really im- 
portant issues that come up from time to time — but equally 
if not more important is the reputation that Canada has in 
the world, and I think I can claim some knowledge in this 
regard because I have been fortunate enough to have met 
and done business with people from many lands — equally 
important is the fact that Canada has lived up to her priv- 
ileges by discharging her obligations. The part she has 
played in two world wars — not only in the fighting men she 
provided, but also in the supply of things that we can pro- 
duce and that others needed — the full part she has played, 
and at times the leadership she has provided in trying to 
meet international problems of peace as well as in times of 
war — these are things of which you can rightly be proud, 
but of which you need not boast. We are not the biggest, 
not the best, or the anything like that, but we can stand in 
the company of any other nation — in the knowledge that 


we have pulled our weight, that we are on the team. That 
is what is important — that is what counts. 

You young Canadians have, as all Canadians have, 
great privileges, and you have obligations to your country, 
to your city, to your school, and to your family, not only 
for direct reward but because you are Canadians. Some- 
times the service you render will be spectacular — more often 
it will be known only to yourself. It matters not who knows 
— though it is very pleasant when recognition comes. But 
if you do your job — if you carry out your obligations — you 
will find the satisfaction that comes from an acceptance of 
the principle that privileges and obligations go hand in hand.

Last year I was formally introduced to our national 
radio broadcasting corporation. I found her then still a 
young, gay and witty debutante, full of promise as a mother 
of Canadian culture. Today she bends over the cradle of 
her first child, Canadian Television. 

In my opinion, this mother and her first-born have a 
tremendous part to play in the development of culture that 
represents a distinctly Canadian way of thinking. Unfor- 
tunately, they do not really understand their mission in life 
and the elder plods along only one step above any Ameri- 
can network. Her true voice cannot be heard because of the 
gagging sands of commercial "plugs" and the strangling 
paws of American humour. To rise into her own glory she 
must leave these two wretched suitors. Her child must not 
even be introduced to them. 

Radio advertising is not the blessing so many sponsors 
would have us believe. Not only is it confusing to the con- 
sumer, but it is a misuse of a great cultural medium. The 
B.B.C. is an extremely good example of what may be done 
without its help. Quite recently, while the renewal of its 
charter was being debated, a board pondered over the ques- 
tion of admittance of commercial programs. The decision 
was "No." Yet the standards of British broadcasting is the 
highest I know. It simply does not need "spots" to survive. 
Neither does the C.B.C. 


American radio and television reflect the intellect of 
the citizens of the U.S. The program schedule presents 
both good and bad. The distinction between the two is 
simple. The good may be understood by anyone with aver- 
age intelligence; the bad may be understood by any moron. 
The former has value as an expresion of worthwhile en- 
tertainment and culture. The latter has no value whatever. 
American humour is overdone. Bob Hope is undoubtedly a 
very clever artist. His ability to rattle off double takes, 
puns and sarcasm seems to be limitless, but he is copied by 
almost every other comedian on the air-waves. If you listen 
to one, you have heard them all, with a few notable excep- 
tions. As a result, every comedy show is stale and uninter- 
esting. Why, then, should the C.B.C. carry these shows when 
Canada has a good supply of wit? Are Davies and Nichol 
out of reach? 

Television in the U.S. has assumed the role of the 
imbecile's entertainment. Any really good programs are 
remote exceptions. Boxing and "slap-stick" comedians 
take so much of the network time that it would be difficult 
to place any other. It is my fervent hope that Canadian 
television never follows this road. 

To sum up the situation, let me point out that commer- 
cial sponsors and "C" class programs are not necessary or 
desirable bulwarks of Canadian radio. If our government is 
interested in promoting a distinct culture let it bear the 
financial burden as does the British government, and pay 
our talent the same salary as American networks pay their 
cheapest talent. Only when this is accomplished will the 
C.B.C. take its rightful place in the life of our nation.

I have often felt I could write an essay on my thoughts, 
just a rambUng essay, rambhng as my thoughts ramble. 
But this would be exposing myself to everybody's scrutiny 
— they would see the fear that caused that so-called cour- 


ageous act of mine, the impatience behind my tolerant smile, 
the meanness behind my pleasant exterior, or, again, the 
admiration behind my unobtrusive glance, the interest be- 
hind my indifference, and The pleasure behind my mask-like 
face — and I cannot allow this. 

The human mind is a very beautiful and awe-inspiring 
organ. It is us; it constitutes as well as controls our whole 
attitude towards life. Imagine that there is a great and 
wonderful hall in your head, and from this hall an intermin- 
able number of roads lead out. Most of these are beautiful 
— some are intricately beautiful, some are simple but still 
beautiful — others are gathering dust with disuse. These 
roads are a celestial mystery, for you may start out in one 
and find yourself in another, but this is only if you are 
careless. Along the roads you travel in the form of thoughts, 
and thoughts control you through and through. As you 
walk along, numerous little bj^ways present themselves; 
some have a whitewashed exterior, others cannot hide their 
dirt, but there are still others that are merely a longer way 
of getting to your destination. The joys and sorrows of life 
always follow you, and either one or the other walks beside 
you for certain distances. Once at your destination you find 
there is always another to go on to, or perhaps it is the 
wrong destination, and then you look back and find you 
cannot return — but there is always some road pointing in 
the right direction. 

When you are young there are many roads to take, and 
you are eager to try them, but as you get older they dimin- 
ish in number until the final picture is that of an old man 
stumbling down one, straight road. But there are more 
aspects — some old men blindly wander around in dead-end 
alleys, and some are not so old. 

And so life's picture is -drawn, a very simple picture, 
a picture which is like an oil painting — it never seems quite 
real — life is infinitely deeper than that picture. It is so 
easy to write down something consistent, but when you re- 
flect, are your thoughts consistent? Is this that you are 


writing down really what you are thinking? Consider your 
rambling thoughts — can you define life?

Seven huddled forms with rifles; 
seven dirty bodies glistening with sweat; 
a glowing campfire in Korean hills; 
and sleep. 

The sound of man or beast nearby; 
the painful awakening of weary men; 
a silent ambush waits for the unknown; 
and still. 

Chinese appear, then hesitate; 
surprise! seven rifle butts meet flesh and bone; 
leaving flesh and the pungent stench of death; 
and quiet. 

Seven forms with bloody rifles; 
seven aching, tortured bodies dank with sweat; 
a dying campfire in Korean hills; 
and sleep? 

—J. A. M. Binnie, VBI. 


Last year after playing a basketball game at another 
school, I was invited into a common room with my team- 
DGLates to hear a rebroadcast of the game. One of the boys 
at that school had made a tape recording of our game as 
he did all home games. His clear voice, his good grammar 
and his knowledge of the game impressed us all. Later it 
was explained to us that this boy, who some day wished to 
be a sportscaster, spent all his free time listening to broad- 
casts of sporting events in order to acquire style and pro- 


ficiency in the terminology of the games. However, it was 
not his abiUty to make the game interesting that impressed 
me, it was his good grammar and speech. 

I was led to think back to one particular hot July 
Sunday afternoon when I and several other million Ameri- 
can baseball fans were listening to the major league baseball 
games. At Yankee Stadium, Dizzy Dean, noted for his 
Southern accent, bad grammar and great ability as a lively 
sportscaster, was spreading over the radio networks his 
version of the Yankee-Red Sox game. Into thousands of 
homes, accompanied by his popular accent, was coming his 
equally popular speech. "It looks like ole' Mickey Harris 
can't get that there ball across the plate. But he ain't the 
only pitcher in this here league who can't do that," and 
a little later on, "the OF Scooter slid into third with a three 
base hit that really cleaned up them there base paths real 
quick." This is the kind of speech that is being broadcast 
in America to great numbers of people through the sports- 
casters. The majority aren't as bad as Diz Dean, but in 
Philadelphia during any game Bryam Salm can be heard 
saying, "It looks hke it's in there for a base hit." Such men, 
because of the popularity of the sporting event, have a great 
effect on the English of their audiences. One would wonder 
why English is taught in schools at all unless they realized 
it is to counteract the influence of the sportscaster. The 
public would rather listen to bad grammar and then pay 
higher taxes to support the additional number of EngHsh 
teachers needed to correct the speech errors spread over 
the radio. 

I was speaking to an avid fan one day on the grammatical 
mistake made by the sportscasters. She agreed, but added 
in defence of Byram Salm, who broadcasts the Philadelphia 
Athletic games, "He don't use any of those kinds of mis- 
takes. He talks real good." I couldn't help wishing that 
some of these sportscasters might be replaced by the ama- 
teur whom I heard last winter. It is time that good gram- 
mar was used on the radio when sporting events are broad- 
cast. — H- F. Walker, VIS. 



The glaring sun beat down on the parched earth. The 
fields were cracked and broken, as if a miniature earthquake 
had opened chasms in the soil. The sun bent the drooping 
wheat still further, and turned the corn an unnatural sickly 

Samuel put down his half -filled bucket beside the trickle 
that was once a stream, and looked across the bank to the 
clapboard church. He checked the time by the sun's shadow 
from the steeple, then walked through the stream towards 
the church. He was going to relieve Brother William, who 
had completed his two-hour vigil. 

Praying for rain — it had happened only once before in 
Samuel's lifetime. But this drought was the worst, even 
the weeds were turning yellow. 

Three farms away, a truck bumped through a swing 
gate, and stopped outside a brick house. A man got out 
and started to unload two large oil drums. He pushed them 
across the road towards a metal shed, where he stood them 
up against one wall, and connected them to a burner. 

Taking a package marked "Silver Iodide" from his 
pocket, he lit the burner and sprinkled the crystals in front 
of the blower. 

The man was Brownen, or "The Easterner," as the 
Mennonites liked to call him. He was a shareholder and 
supervisor in "The Krick Rain Association," and had set 
up four rain-making generators on his own land. The Men- 
nonites laughed at him and called him "The Drip." Maybe 
they found it funny, though how they had any laughter left 
in them Brownen could not understand. 

In the rapidly fading grey-black of the evening, no one 
saw the cloud front building up behind the hills. At two- 
thirty in the morning, a quiet whispering squall of rain 
pattered on the tin roof of the church. Brother William, 
who had taken one of the night vigils, didn't notice the rain 
until a roll of thunder broke his concentration. He leaped 
up, startled, then dashed to the front doors, flung them open 


and ran outside. He looked up at the sky, feeling the salty 
taste of his rain-washed lips, and started to pray again, 
loudly and thankfully. The rain spattered the earth, each 
drop turning some dust into a cup of mud. 

For two days the rain poured out of the grey sky. The 
trickling stream had long before turned into a bloated river, 
full of mud, sticks, and trees. The corn, first weakened by 
the sun, now overwhelmed by the rain, collapsed into a 
sodden mass. The wheat fields were completely flat, a tan- 
gled, soggy blanket on the earth. 

Each day the river rose, until on the fifth day, the 
water started to splash and spray over the banks. That 
evening the water rose another two inches and flooded into 
the corn fields, covering all Brother Samuel's land, dripping 
through his house and flooding his cellar. His winter stock 
of potatoes and flour turned into a compact glue. Samuel 
moved what he could into the top floor, and tied up two of 
his cows on the porch. 

The muddy river continued to churn downstream, car- 
rying top soil off the farms and down to the river mouth. 
The river swirled past Brownen's house, but didn't rise high 
enough to reach the house. But his fields were flooded, and 

his generators were completely ruined.

"Upon the whole surface of the globe, there is no more 
spacious and splendid domain than Canada open to the activity 
and genius of free men." 

!Rt. Hon. W. S. Churchill, 
January 14, 1952. 

Canada unlimited! Even this sweeping phrase is hardly 
ample to describe this truly unlimited land. For, within the 
natural and man-made boundaries, this great expanse of 
land sprawls over four million square miles, from the Arctic 
to the Great Lakes, from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Only 
one other country on this sphere, the U.S.S.R., has an area 
considerably greater. 


Within this area, comprising half the North American 
continent, there exist some of the greatest tracts of natural 
resources in the world. Of these, there are those so huge 
and expansive that they have hardly been touched, but their 
names ring throughout the world. Ungava peninsula, with 
unheard-of amounts of valuable ores; Alberta, with a new 
supply of high grade crude oils for the machinery of the 
country's business; Uranium City and Great Slave Lake, 
uranium and radium sources for the Democratic nations; 
Arvida, on the East Coast, and Kitimat, under construction 
on the West Coast, will be two of the world's greatest 
aluminum producing plants; the town of Swift Rock in 
Northern Ontario, where a lake has been drained, and seventy 
feet of silt removed, to enable the huge iron resources to be 
exploited; all these and many more such projects are being 
carried on. This, and the people who run this industry, are 
doing much toward the building of a Canada "Unlimited." 

The population of this nation is not nearly large enough 
among all the bits and pieces which are contributing to 
Canada. For, spread across a continent, in big cities like 
Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton, and Vancouver, and in the 
tiny hamlets which dot the countryside, there live only four- 
teen million people. In the past twenty years, the number 
has increased by three millions, a large percentage of whom 
are immigrants. But this mighty land is far from becoming 
full, and to build a strong nation, economically and militarily, 
a large growth of population is required. Many countries, 
European and otherwise, are complaining of a surplus, so 
surely we should not have to lack. 

Governing this robust, but sparsely populated nation, 
is a full-fledged Democratic type of government, which has 
been considered "responsible" for eighty-five years. Not 
only does this government run its own affairs, but recently 
it has been playing an ever increasing role in the managing 
of the world to-day, through the United Nations. More 
countries than ever before are now listening to the voice 
of Canada's representatives, and so to Canada, at these 
widely attended U.N. conferences. 


As well as contributing to these meetings, Canada also 
contributes concrete support in times of world crises: there 
are Canadian ships and soldiers in Korea; in Canada, a 
heavy program of military training is being undertaken, and 
a strong tri-Service force is being built up; uranium infor- 
mation is crossing the border both ways, and Canada has 
contributed much more than the material for the manufac- 
ture of atomic weapons; there is a Canadian force under 
the command of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, 
and large shipments of arms and armored vehicles have been 
sent to many of the N.A.T.O. countries. 

In addition to exports of strategic war materials, Can- 
ada has increased her export trade, and has unlimited pos- 
sibilities of continuing to increase it. Since 1939, when she 
was at parity with the Scandinavian countries, Canada has 
tripled her trade, until she is now surpassed only by the 
United States, the United Kingdom, and France. As she 
supplies a large number of items that are in continuous 
demand, being the provider of cereals for seventy-one na- 
tions, her export trade is in no way limited. She supplies 
ninety per cent of the world's supply of nickel, a strategic 
metal in high demand, and fifty per cent of the world's news- 
print. Under the "Minister for Everything," the Hon. C. D. 
Howe, and the Minister of Finance, the Hon. D. G. Abbott, 
Canada has built up a sound economy, until the Canadian 
dollar, freed from currency regulations, rose to a par with 
the long-envied American equivalent. If such a step is taken, 
and such a result is achieved, then there is no doubt that 
Canada has unlimited possibilities. 

With huge supplies of natural resources, with even 
greater industry to work these into useful goods, with a 
government to run the nation, and listened to by many 
nations, and with a monetary surplus and efficient Ministers 
to control the exports and imports of the country, Canada 
has no limit to her possibilities of development. In the for- 
seeable future, instead of being "one" of the leading nations 
Canada may be "the" leading nation of the free world.

The Record once more has the pleasure of congratulat- 
ing a Little Big Four Championship team. This term it is 
the First Cricket team, which tied with Ridley and St. 
Andrew's, each School winning two and losing one of its 

It has been a very successful season for T.C.S. on the 
athletic field with Little Big Four Championships being won 
in Football, Squash, Swimming, and Cricket. The Hockey 
team also had the best record among the Little Big Four 

We sincerely hope that this high standard of play will 
be kept up and that the team spirit that has been so prev- 
alent among the school teams this year will remain with 
the School for many years to come. 

Again, congratulations to all those who had anything 
to do with the athletic life here at T.C.S. , no matter how 
small it may have been.

Cricket at Trinity this spring was badly hampered by 
a lack of practice. As a result of Inspection Day being a 
week later, and Upper School test examinations coming at 
about the same time, there was not much time left for the 
cricket team, and as always many of the free days were 


blessed ( ?) with a deluge of rain. Despite this drawback, the 
team managed to do reasonably well in its five exhibition 
games, winning two, losing one, drawing one, and having 
one called on account of rain. 

On April 26, the first team split into two teams, to play 
both St. Edmund's Cricket Club and the Port Hope Cricket 
Club. In the match against St. Edmund's, Muntz was Trin- 
ity's best batsman, scoring 45 before he retired, and ac- 
counting for over half of Trinity's total runs. The batting 
of St. Edmund's was very evenly spread throughout the 
team, with no exceptional scores by anyone. Adamson was 
the best bowler of the afternoon taking 3 wickets for 5 runs, 
and Hylton was second with 4 for 12. March, taking 2 for 
7, was the best for St. Edmund's. T.C.S. won the match 
by a score of 84 to 40. 

In the second game of the day, the other group of the 
first team defeated the Port Hope Cricket Club 89-49. Norm 
Seagram was the top batsman for Trinity, scoring 20 runs, 
followed by Mitchell and R. G. Church, with 16 and 15 re- 
spectively. Mr. Parkins, our cricket pro, was the best bats- 
man for Port Hope, hitting 24 runs before being bowled by 
Cowan, and Mr. Gwynne-Timothy hit 10 before Mitchell 
caught him out just as the ball was going over the boundary 
for a six. Incidentally, Mr. G.T.'s ten was composed of a 
four and a six, pretty nifty hitting for an ancient Greek, or 
was it Wales? Brewer was the best bowler for Trinity, 
taking 3 wickets for 3 runs, and Cowan was second with 4 
for 13. Mr. Parkins bowled an excellent average of 6 for 
20, and was followed by Mr. G.T. with 3 for 23. 

The next match was played on May 3, against the 
Toronto Cricket Club, and this was our only loss, with the 
final score reading 137-101 in favour of the visitors. Muntz 
was Trinity's top scorer with 26 runs, Hylton was second 
with 15. McLean, who has played on numerous provincial 
championship teams, was top for T.C.C. with 34, followed 
by Gunn and Loney with 21 each. Muntz was also the best 
bowler of the afternoon, taking 5 wickets for 26 runs. Gunn, 
who last year played against the Marylebone Cricket Club 


when it was touring Canada, was best for T.C.C, taking 
3 for 15. 

The fourth match was played on May 10, against Park- 
dale Cricket Club, and it ended in a draw with Trinity being 
unable to take the last wicket before the stumps were drawn. 
The match ended. Trinity all out for 80, and Parkdale 9 out 
for 75. The three top Trinity batsmen were Gordon with 
17, Merston with 16, and Hylton not out for 13. McNicol 
with 18 was the best for Parkdale, and was followed by 
Folkard, Humphrey, and Gough with 12 each. Adamson 
and Muntz were Trinity's top bowlers, Adamson with 3 for 
7, and Muntz with 3 for 21. Corbin with 5 wickets for 25 
runs was the best for Parkdale. 

The last exhibition game was played against Grace 
Church Cricket Club, and was drowned out in rain at lunch- 
time. Before lunch, however, Mr. Cole, the captain of the 
visiting team and a former master at the School, put up an 
excellent stand v/ith Mr. Trestrail, both of them scoring 42 
runs. Mr. Trestrail was not out at lunch-time, and since he 
has not been put out all this year, perhaps it was lucky for 
Trinity that he was unable to continue. 

Grace Church's score when the game was called was 
3 wickets for 120. 


The annual Old Boys' game was this year played on 
May 31, and resulted in a triumph for the School although 
the Old Boys claimed a decisive moral victory. The final 
outcome was a 95 to 76 score. The Firsts went in to bat in 
the morning and steadily built up a total that the Old Boys 
were unable to reach. Tony Higgins was the School's lead- 
ing bat, accounting for 31 runs, with Phil Muntz being very 
effective by hitting up 18. Norman Seagram Jr. suffered the 
embarrassment of having his wickets fall at the hands of 
his father, Norman O. Seagram. P. G. C. Ketchum, McGee, 
Landry and Taylor proved to be capable batters for the 
"Oldies" gaining 53 runs of their total. J. W. Seagram was 



given a good workout as he bowled 18 overs while taking 
four wickets for the Old Boys. The leading School bowlers 
were John Hylton, who scattered four Old Boy wickets for 
30 runs, and Tony Brewer, who took three wickets for six

For the first time in the history of the School, a team 
of fathers played a cricket match with a team of their own 
sons now at the School. Captained by Mr. N. O. Seagram 
and using the "Patented Seagram Method of Complex 
Scoring," the Fathers emerged victorious by winning 63^ 
points to 51%. However, the true score went in favour of 
the Sons who batted 127 runs to the Fathers' 106. The "Sea- 
gram Method" awarded points to each team in the basis of 
fielding as well as batting. For each run scored, the batting 
team was awarded one-third of a point while each extra 
counted one-sixth of a point. If a Father claimed his Son's 
wicket, his team was awarded 5 points while if some other 
Father took a Son's wicket, the fielding team was given only 
3 points. Thus was the scoring method used and although 
the Sons were slightly sceptical of it, they did concede that 
it had some merit. 

As for the game itself, it had some highly amusing in- 
cidents. Have you ever seen a ball which has been bowled

quite naturally yet never goes as far as the bowler's hind 
leg? Ask Mr. B. M. Osier about that one. Mr. G. L. Boone, 
Mr L. Bonnycastle, and Mr. Ketchum were the leaders of 
the Fathers' batting, having to retire after scoring 15 runs. 
The same applied to M. dePencier, N. M. Seagram and J. 
Merry of the Sons. The bowling was evenly divided among 
both the teams since the "Seagram" rules stated that a 
Father must bowl to his Son and vice-versa. 

Altogether, it was an extremely enjoyable game and it 
is hoped that it will become a tradition.

T.C.S. vs U.C.C. 
May 28, 1952. Won 87-68 

The first Little Big Four match was played on Trinity 
grounds against Upper Canada College. Trinity went in to 
bat first, but unfortunately the batsmen were unable to 
settle down, and in a very short time 4 wickets had fallen 
for 23 runs. Then McDerment and Seagram made an excel- 
lent stand until McDerment was caught out for 24, and the 
game was called for lunch, with a much more reassuring 
score of 5 for 65. The weather which had been threatening 
all morning seemed at lunch-time to promise rain, but al- 
though there were a couple of short cloudbursts, the rain 
held off, and the game was finished in the sun. Play was 
resumed at two o'clock, and wickets fell steadily until the 
side was retired for a total of 87 runs at three o'clock. The 
three best batsmen for Trinity were, McDerment with 24, 
Seagram with 18, and Hylton with 12. 

Muntz and Hylton opened the bowling for Trinity, and 
owing to Muntz's fast and accurate bowling, U.C.C. had lost 
4 wickets for 22 runs before three-thirty. Webb kept his 



wicket up for some time but never seemed at ease, and went 
out after an hour at bat with the respectable total of 16 runs. 
After this wicket was taken the others followed fairly 
rapidly, with Brewer taking two wickets, one of which was 
a catch by wicket-keeper McDerment. Adamson, Hylton, 
and Muntz completed the bowling, with catches by Cowan 
and Adamson. The side was retired for 68 runs. Webb with 
16 was Upper Canada's best batsman, with Thomas and 
Roberts coming second with 11 each. Turville was the best 
bowler for U.C.C. taking four wickets for 22 runs, and Webb 
was close behind with 5 for 27. Trinity's best bowler was 
Muntz, who took four wickets for 21 runs, and Brewer was 
second with 2 for 13.

T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. 

At Aurora, June 4, 1952. Lost by 62 runs and 9 wickets 

The papers called it a stunning upset. Perhaps it was, 
but to an average spectator, it was a good display of field- 
ing and bowling in the morning, and in the afternoon, an 
exceptional stand at bat by a pair of batsmen who won the 
match for their home school without letting a wicket fall. 
The honours of the day should definitely go to Coulter 
Osborne, who batted for an excellent total of 71 for St. 
Andrew's, and his teammate Bill Lovering, who made the 
stand with him, and also scored the admirable total of 26 
rims. The best bowlers for St. Andrew's were Chuck Mai- 


colmson, who took five wickets for fifteen runs, and John 
Auld, who took four for twenty. Phil Muntz with 11 runs 
was Trinity's best batsman, followed by Tony Brewer with 
10. The match was played on a hot day, with a fast field 
and exceptionally true pitch, that would not allow a break 
on any of the bowling. Osborne was caught out by Norm 
Seagram just before four o'clock, and at tea it was decided 
not to continue the match. Our congratulations go to S.A.C. ; 
they played extremely well against us.

T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY 
At U.C.C., June 7, 1952. Won 71-68 

Despite the predictions, this game turned out to be a 
real thriller, especially since Trinity, as the under-dogs, took 
the match, and earned a share in the three way tie for the 
Little Big Four Championship. The game did not begin to 
get tense until Ridley had gone through half their batting 
order, but there were some good scores made by the Trinity 
batsmen. Norm Seagram was the top batter of the day with 
15 runs, followed by Higgins with 14, Brown with 13, and 
McDerment with 12. However, the real game was played 
after Girvin was bowled out by Muntz. Trinity had now 
taken six Ridley wickets for 56 runs, and Trinity had only 
reached a total of 71. The game looked somewhat grim. 
Then Brewer and Hylton gave a very cool display of accurate 


bowling in a very tense situation, and took the next four 
wickets for 12 runs, to win the game for us. It was a magni- 
ficent display of bowling combined with a tight field, and 
Trinity certainly deserved the victory that they obtained. 
Cook with 11 was Ridley's best batsman, while Stewart with 
4 wickets for 21 runs was their best bowler. Hylton with 3 
wickets for 5 runs took the T.C.S. bowling honours, followed 
by Brewer with 3 for 12.

The Seconds gave a very good account of themselves 
this season by remaining undefeated in their short three- 
game schedule. Producing a victory in both the Upper 
Canada College and Grove matches, they were forced to 
call the return Grove match a draw. 

Upper Canada was defeated in the first match on the 
Trinity table by a 98-93 score. Ronald Johnson and Francis 
Norman carried the big bats for T.C.S. as they knocked up 
35 and 34 runs respectively. However, Mason of the visitors 
bettered these totals by gaining 36 runs off Trinity bowling, 
Johnson was also the leading T.C.S. bowler as he claimed 
four Blue and White wickets for 21 runs. Trinity found it 
difficult to bat against the bowling of Williams, who scat- 
tered six T.C.S. wickets against 22 runs. 

In a match with the Grove, T.C.S. produced their second 
victory by batting up a total of 95 runs against the 86 runs 
off the bats of the visitors. Tony Higgins was the outstand- 
ing player on the field as he gained complete control of the 
Lakefield bowling and scored 57 runs before his wicket fell. 
Twenty-three runs was the top Grove score which belonged 
to Galambos. Johnson had his bowling in good condition 
as he took six wickets for 22 Grove runs. Powell was suc- 
cessful in accounting for six Trinity wickets. 

The return match played away at the Grove ended in 
a draw due to unkind weather. Lakefield opened the batting 
and were retired for 92 runs; T.C.S. were able to bat only 
29 runs before the game was halted. Boyd knocked down 
the four T.C.S. wickets to be the best Grove bowler. Ron 


Johnson again was the best in the Trinity bowling depart- 
ment as he was credited with seven wickets against 29 runs.

House Game 

The annual House game this year was won by Bethune, 
who soundly defeated Brent with a 76-45 score. The Bethune 
team was led by Ron Johnson who hit up 14 runs and 
Mitchell and Bingham, who each accounted for 13 runs. 
The Brent batting was fairly even among the team, with 
Dave Luxton showing the way with 10 runs. The Bethune 
bowling honours went to Henri Lafleur, who allowed only 
18 runs while taking five wickets. Mowry and Luxton proved 
to be the most effective Brent bowlers. 


This year, although they had a very short schedule, 
the Littleside eleven made a very good showing in spite of 
being hampered by poor practising conditions. They won 
two out of their four games, taking decisions in matches 
against the Toronto All Star Juniors and Upper Canada 
College while dropping a match to Saint Andrew's College 
and the return contest with Upper Canada. 

Trinity played two full innings with the All Star Junior 
team from Toronto and won both with scores of 51-32 and 
41-25. The first innings was highlighted by the batting of 
Young who hit up a very cautious twenty runs before re- 
tiring. Sheppard was the best Toronto batter, hitting ten 
runs before being bowled by Ketchum. Fleming had the 
best bowling average of the innings by knocking down four 
Junior wickets for only five runs. Young again was the star 
batter in the second innings when he scored 18 runs before 
his wicket was taken. The bowling honours were shared 
evenly between Ketchum and Young. 

In their second game played on the Trinity pitch, T.C.S. 
won a very close match with U.C.C. by a 53-52 score. Gibson 


from Upper Canada was the outstanding player of the game. 
Besides batting in 33 runs without being put out, he took 
four T.C.S. wickets while having only ten runs scored against 
him. Young with 13 runs and Watson with 9 carried the 
best Trinity bats while Mather and Ketchum were the best 
bowlers, accounting for four of the U.C.C. wickets. 

In the return match with Upper Canada, T.C.S. did not 
do as well and were defeated by ten runs, the score being 
49-39. Mather and Donald combined to hit up 26 runs of 
the Trinity total with Watson, in his two overs of bowling, 
taking two U.C.C. wickets for two runs. Young, with four 
wickets to his credit, and Mather with three, were the back- 
bone of the Trinity team. A second innings saw Upper 
Canada once more hand T.C.S. a defeat with a 43-25 score. 

Saint Andrew's trounced T.C.S. in a match played here 
with an overwhelming score of 73-39. Even though they 
were led by the excellent bowling of Ketchum who took five 
wickets, three of them occurring in one over, the Trinity 
bowlers could not control the batters from S.A.C., especially 
Bradshaw, Lewis and Post, who scored over fifty of the 
Saint Andrew's total. Mather was the best Trinity scorer 
by hitting nine runs. 

T.C.S. — Ketchum, Burns, Mather, Osier ii, Young, Cumberland, 
Donald, Watson, Fleming, Osier i, Luxton ii, Kilburn, Budge, Monte- 

House Game 

The Littleside season was climaxed by the House game 
which this year was won by Brent. The score was 40 for 
3 to 33 all out. Mike Burns held up the Bethune side ably 
by hitting thirteen runs before his wicket was claimed by 
Ketchum. Young was the Brent star by retiring after bat- 
ting 14 runs, while Mather proved to be an excellent opening 
batter by knocking up a quick eleven runs. Van Straubenzee 
was the other outstanding player for Bethune, taking the 
three Brent wickets and accounting for six runs. 


May 30, 1952 

This year Sports Day was postponed a week because of 
rain and soggy fields, but when it was finally held on May 
30, five records were broken and one was tied. The only 
new senior record was set by Phil Muntz in the discus 
throw, with a new mark of 104 yards, bettering the old 
record by two yards. In the intermediate events Mike de 
Pencier vaulted 8'8" for a new record, and tied the old high 
jump mark of 5'3". Phil Greey cut .1 seconds off the in- 
termediate low hurdles, covering the 120 yards in 15.2 sees. 
Bob Young set a new junior broad jump distance of 17' 
lOi/o", bettering Donald's record of last year by 2". Bethune 
House surpassed the junior relay record, winning it in 53.2 
sees. The runners were, Dalgleish ii, Overholt, Burns ii, and 

The Daykin Cup for the highest senior aggregate was 
shared by Bob McDerment and Eric Jacknian, with 19 
points each. They were followed by John Long with 12, and 
Gord Currie and Jim Dolph, with 11 each. Phil Greey won 
the intermediate cup, scoring 23 points. Tim Ryley and 
Mike dePencier tied for second with 15 each, and MacKinnon 
was third with 10. Bob Young made an excellent score of 
26 in the Junior, taking five firsts, and one third, and he 
was followed by Trowsdale with 19, and Ferrie with 14. The 
keenly contested House Cup was won this year as in the 
last three years by Brent House, who totalled 197 points in 
comparison to Bethune's 130.

This year's tennis tournament, played under the adverse 
conditions of exams and closing up, saw Anthony Lafleur

was won by Bethune House, and three matches were played 
for this championship.

Another Trinity Term has passed with its usual speed. 
It is a nice term for us in the Junior School who are not 
faced with Matric. exams at the end of it. Our only sadness 
comes at the end when we have to say good-bye to the boys 
who are leaving us and whom we have got to know so well. 
Good luck to them and may every success be theirs in the 
Senior School! 

The School picnic was held under rather unusual con- 
ditions this year. It rained! This is the first time for many 
years that this has happened. In spite of the weather all 
went well and, in fact, many people rather enjoyed getting 
thoroughly wet and muddy. 

Cricket has flourished more than ever in the Junior 
School this year. The new "Snipe League" with its only local 
rules proved a great success and seems to be here to stay. 
It should improve the calibre of our cricket in the years to 

Our sincere thanks to Mrs. Renison for the gift she 
has made us of a cash prize to be awarded next year to the 
boy who writes the best essay on the northland. 

We are very grateful to Mr. J. W. Seagram for his gift 
of a radio to the Boys' Reading Room. Very many thanks! 

We welcome Patrick Morris to the School and extend 
our congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Morris. 


As I passed over the bridge, I saw a group of fishermen 
close under the arch, drifting lazily with a superficial tide. 
They were dressed in ragged summer clothes and looked 
very poor. 

From the wooden bridge bordering the small stream 
running half-heartedly through the golf course, I could see 
the little green punt was leaking badly; nevertheless, the 
small group was enjoying itself fishing for golf balls to sell 
to those who need them. There were four of them taking 


turns to poke around in the muddy water. Every now and 
then one of the group would toss a ball into a bag and gently 
put the bag into the bow of the boat as if it were so much 

In the winter, the snow and wind would make their 
little business impossible. But as summer came into view, 
the four of them would be out fishing in the same little 
rowboat, this time with a little more paint chipped off the 
hull. The weather would mean little to them for there seemed 
to be nothing else to do except eat, sleep, and fish for golf

The Hawk Moth is a beautiful grey moth with orange 
spots down each side of its body and very long, slender wings 
without any markings on them. I was once fortunate enough 
to find one. 

One day as I was walking through a tomato patch, I 
found a large green caterpillar. Thinking that it might be 


fun to watch it grow, I took it home. It grew very rapidly 
and one day we thought it was going to die because it got 
very sick-looking and its skin shrivelled up. But, to our sur- 
prise, we saw the skin split open and the caterpillar pulled 
it off. There it stood with a new set of clothes on! A few 
days later, it disappeared and after a long search we found 
it under the sand. There it had made a chrysalis and was 
going to spend the winter. 

A few weeks later we saw it start to move, and just the 
next day after I had come home from school a beautiful 
moth was squirming on top of the sand. We quickly put 
some branches in the jar and it climbed up them. There it 
opened and shut its wings until they were about three inches 

This is the life story of the Hawk Moth.

It was about seven o'clock in the evening at our cottage 
on a little inlet called Dock Bay, which is on the Lake 
Superior coast, when our Mother told my brother and me to 
go out of the house and get some fresh air. We did this 
reluctantly but we did not regret it. 

We were just coming back to the house, when we saw a 
low figure slinking toward a cherry pie cooling on the win- 
dow-sill. We distinguished the creature as a fox. We watched 
closely as he placed his paws on the wall of the cottage and 
started reaching for the pie. I let out a yell, and the startled 
creature stood stock-still for a moment, then disappeared 
into the underbrush. 

We went into the house and ate our meal followed by 
a foxy dessert.

All anglers have their pet tales of the large fish they 
have caught in their fishing experiences. But these stories 
are far outnumbered by the sometimes exaggerated yarns 
of the fish that got away, or that were sighted but never 
hooked. My story is about the later. 

One afternoon last summer, I was fishing the reefs of 
Caroline Island in the Georgian Bay. I was after a dinner 
of small mouthed bass. 

I fished the likely looking holes and boulders for two 
hours without a strike. I knew my mother would be disap- 
pointed at the empty box; I had to prove I was an angler 
by catching something, if only a perch. 

I decided to stop in at the old, well-known Graft's Pool. 
Resolving to give myself twenty minutes, I headed through 
the shallow channel to the sheltered bay. Fifteen minutes 
later the box was still empty. I was beginning to see red. 

In my anger I made a long cast in the direction of the 
opposite shore. It was an extremely bad cast, with yards 
and yards of backlash tangled around the reel. It took me 
a full minute to unwind and straighten out the mess. 

As I started to reel in, I noticed the line had curved 
around in a large arc, the end moving against the wind and 
current. The line grew taut. I thought I had caught bottom 
when suddenly a bass, one of the biggest I had ever seen, 
let alone hooked, broke the surface thirty feet away. He 
was no whale — maybe three pounds — but that is above 
average for a black bass. 

Cautiously I reeled him in, until he was alongside the 
boat. Then I dipped the net in the water and snared him, 
lifting him into the boat at the same time. He was well 
hooked — it took a while to get the hook out of his upper lip. 
But then I simply had to go, for it was nearly six. My fish 
would make two nice fillets for my mother and myself. So 
I started the motor and headed home, glancing back at where 
I had caught my fish. 

And suddenly, as I was passing the jutting promontory, 
a fish jumped in the pool. This was a bass — a full two pounds 


heavier and eight inches longer than my fish — a real lunker. 
That one, much more than the one I caught, is the fish of 
my dreams and I'll remember it all my life.

Captain of Second XI D. L. Dunlap 

The cricket season this year was a very successful one 
and the standard of play well up to that of previous years. 
Seldom have we had two such exciting matches in one sea- 
son as we had this year with Ridley and St. Andrew's. They 
were the kind of games that make cricket well worthwhile 
and every boy who played will remember them in the years 
to come. 


First XI Colours have been awarded to the following: — 
W. F. Boughner (Capt.), A. R. Winnett, P. J. Budge, R. G. 
Seagram, E. H. tenBroek, P. C. Jennings. 

Half-Colours — P. F. Saegert, A. M. Campbell, J. C. Cape, 
N. P. Godfrey, D. E. Cape. 


On May 19, the team opened the season at Lakefield on 
a wet wicket with showers falling at intervals. T.C.S. fielded 
extremely well and batted strongly. Lakefield's fielding was 
excellent but they were uncertain at bat. 

T.C.S. — 79 (for 9 wickets) (Jennings 36, Seagram 18 not out) 
(Bowling: Gordon 4 wickets for 25 runs). 

Lakefield — 23 (Creswick 9 runs) (Bowling: Winnett 7 wickets for 
14 runs. Budge 2 wickets for runs). 


The return game against the Grove took place at T.C.S. 
on May 28. The School batted first and showed considerable 
confidence on their own grounds. Lakefield did not appear 
to be bowling as well as in the previous game. 

T.C.S. — 120 (Budge 37, Bougher 17 not out) (Bowling: Creswick 
3 for 38 runs). 

Lakefield — 26 (Regan 11 runs) (Bowling: Winnett 5 wickets for 
14 runs, Budge 5 wickets for 10 runs). 

On May 30 the School played Ridley at the Toronto 
Cricket Club in the most exciting game of the season. T.C.S. 
batted first and ran up 67 runs. Ridley followed on with a 
score of 72, only passing the School's score with their last 
man up to bat. A first-class game which neither team will 

T.C.S. — 67 runs (Seagram 29 runs) (Bowling: Griffiths 4 wickets 
for 30 runs). 

Ridley — 72 runs (Bakogeorge 16 runs not out) (Bowling: Win- 
nett 7 wickets for 23 runs). 

June 4, saw another very close game at Saint Andrew's. 
The wicket-keeping of the S.A.C. team was one of the high- 
lights of the game. The School batted first against good 
bowling and were all out for 50 runs. S.A.C. replied with 
61 runs. Both sides showed some excellent fielding. 

T.C.S. — 50 runs (Boughner 11 runs, Budge 10 runs). (Bowling: 
Grey iii 4 wickets for 9, Ketchum 3 wickets for 10). 

SJ\..C. — 61 runs (Beltran and Ketchum 16 runs). (Bowling: Win- 
nett 3 wickets for 17, Budge 3 wickets for 26). 

The last game of the season was played at Port Hope 
on June 7, against U.C.C. The School batted first very 
strongly and knocked up 154 runs. U.C.C. did not seem able 
to settle down and were all out for 45 runs. 

T.C.S. — 154 runs (Seagram 53 retired, Jennings 31). (Bowling: 
Ireton 5 wickets for 74). 

U.C.C. — 45 runs (Lister 14 runs), (Bowling: Godfrey 3 wickets 
for 8, Winnett 7 wickets for 13).

June 7 vs. U.C.C. at Port Hope. 

T.C.S. 91; U.C.C. 51. 

House Game 

The House Game produced some excellent cricket this 
year together with many thrills. Two full innings were played 
and the fortunes of each House hung in the balance on 
several occasions. 

Orchard batted first and were all out for 47 runs. Rigby 
countered strongly with a score of 80 runs. The second 
innings saw some very determined batting by Orchard led 
by Boughner (who got over 40 runs) to raise a score of 124 
runs. Rigby lost several quick wickets in the second innings 
and it was only when Hyland and Cassels made a determined 
stand at the end, that their hopes were raised — only to be 
dashed when Hyland was caught by Elderkin. 

Orchard House, 171; Rigby House, 164. 

The Snipe Cricket League 

The first season of the Snipe Cricket was an undoubted 
success. Five full rounds were played making fifteen matches 
for each team. The final results show the tightness of the 

1. The M.C.C. (Captain Borden) 43 points 

2. The Australians (Captain Whitehead) 41 points 

3. Yorkshire (Captain Chauvin) 40 points 

4. The West Indies (Captain Caryer) 34 points

The Annual Meeting of the Central Association was 
held at the School on Saturday, May 31, during the Old 
Boys' Reunion Week-end. The President, Mr. Norman O. 
Seagram, was chairman and gave a very interesting report 
of the many activities during the past year and a half, par- 
ticularly of the Association's Special Prize Fund, and of the 
Bursary Fund. 

Since the Reunion Week-end had proved so successful 
it was moved by Mr. J. G. Defries and seconded by Lt.-Col. 
F. S. Mathewson that Article III, Section 2, of the Constitu- 
tion: "An Annual Old Boys' Week-end and General Meeting 
of the Association shall be held at the School during the 
Thanksgiving Week-end in October, and the Queen's Birth- 
day, June 9, be reserved each year for Old Boys' Cricket 
Matches" be deleted, and "An Annual Old Boys' Week-end 
and General Meeting of the Association shall be held at the 
School during the month of May each year" be substituted 
therefor. This motion was carried unanimously. 

Brigadier Ian Cumberland moved that the meeting go 
on record as approving that boys of the Sixth Form be per- 
mitted to wear the Old Boys' Blazer and Crest. This motion 
was seconded by Mr. J. G. K. Strathy and passed un- 

Mr. C. F. W. Burns, chairman of the School's Sustain- 
ing Fund campaign, gave a talk on the fund, stressing its 
objective to preserve and strengthen the School, and paid 
tribute to the leadership of the Headmaster, Mr. P. A. C. 


Mr. Seagram then read a telegram from the Ridley Old 
Boys' Association conveying best wishes for the success of 
the T.C.S. Week-end. A similar telegram had been sent to 
Ridley College. 

It was moved by Mr, G. L. Boone, seconded by Mr. J. 
W. Seagram and passed unanimously, that Brigadier Ian 
Cumberland and Mr. P. C. Osier be elected to the Central 
Executive as representatives of the Toronto Branch. 

Mr. P. C. Osier, seconded by Mr. H. F. Labatt, moved 
that Mr. P. A. DuMoulin be elected as a representative of 
the Association on the Governing Body of the School for a 
term of three years, and this motion was also carried un- 

Mr. Seagram then introduced the question of a new or 
additional Old Boys' Tie. After much discussion the meet- 
ing decided against immediate action and this question was 
left for further investigation and discussion. 

The Headmaster expressed his great pleasure at the 
number of Old Boys who had returned to the School for 
the week-end as well as his thanks to the President, Norman 
Seagram, for the keen interest he had taken in the affairs 
of the Association during the past year. Mr. Seagram then 
adjourned the meeting. 


After more than a year of consideration, the Governing 
Body has decided to appeal for a fund which will be used 
to keep the School in a sound position. Mr. Charles Burns 
'has once again most nobly taken on the task of co-ordinating 
the activities as Chairman, Mr. N. O. Seagram is in charge 
of the Toronto committee and Mr. Dudley Dawson is Chair- 
man of the Montreal group. 

As everyone knows who is in close touch with the School, 
the present extremely high level of operating costs makes 
it impossible to put aside any funds for much needed re- 
modelling, for the building of any houses for masters, or

indeed for some of the renewals to the building which are 
most necessary. 

A brief statement of the School's record and objectives 
has been prepared; it will be circulated widely. The Head- 
master has also prepared a memorandum containing details 
and statistics of the present School. 

It is hoped that all Old Boys and Friends who want to 
see T.C.S. continue to flourish as a leading independent 
school will find it possible to make contributions to this fund, 
either annually for a number of years, or in one amount. 
All other appeals have been discontinued ; Old Boys' bursaries 
will be maintained from the invested funds and it is hoped 
there will be additional grants from the new fund if the 
campaign is a success. 

Old Boys and others who have been most generous in 
the past are not being urged to respond again to this appeal, 
but there are many others who have said they would be 
glad to help the School maintain its position and rise to 
new heights by the provision of such assistance. 


It was generally agreed that the experiment of holding 
the Old Boys' Week-end at the end of May was a conspicuous 
success; we were lucky to have beautiful weather and the 
School and countryside were at their best. Visitors began 
arriving on Friday and the first team game got under way 
on Saturday morning. After lunch two other matches were 
organized and there were nearly a hundred Old Boys and 
their wives at the School during the afternoon. 

There were refreshments at the Lodge before the Old 
Boys' Dinner in Hall at 7.30, and many were the reminis- 
cences of old days. After the dinner, the annual meeting 
was held in the assembly room, an account of which is given 
elsewhere. Then there were fireworks on the playing field 
and many rockets sent off from the terrace. 

On Sunday, there was a special Old Boys' Service at 
10.00 a.m. and the Fathers vs. Sons match began at 11 a.m. 


The rather unique part of this match was first the fact that 
there were twelve Old Boy Fathers each with a son at the 
School old enough to play a good game against his forebear, 
and the original method of scoring invented by N. O. Sea- 
gram. The match went on until 4.30 p.m. Lunch was an 
enjoyable event in Hall, as a number of wives had arrived 
to gather up the remains of their husbands after the match. 
The game ended at 4.30 p.m. and then there was tea at the 
Lodge. Some Old Boys stayed for Chapel at 5.15 but most 
nursed their sore muscles and dragged themselves home. A 
memorable and most enjoyable week-end.

B. M. Osier ('20-'26), Hugh Labatt ('98-'01), Norman O.

life in Geneva, he finds, is similar to that at T.C.S. except 
that it took him a little time to get used to co-education. 
Kimmy has done considerable travelling and spent the Easter 
holidays in Italy. He finds Canada is generally regarded by 
Europeans as being a very good friend.

dening" and they have bought a good plain car for $75 to 
carry their equipment. 

E. C. Buck, who is now living in Fort Lauderdale,

Fort Lauderdale. 

Tom Lawson ('43-'47) has been an Assistant Master at 
Ashbury College during this past year and has enjoyed his

be equalled by any other city in Canada. 

Ted Hungerford ('42-'44) is running the family Lodge 
in Muskoka, called "Lumina" on Lake of Bays. He was 
within two months of obtaining his Wings in the Air Force

DR. C. D. PARFITT (1887-'90) 

We are privileged to print the following extract from a 
letter written by Mr. V. H. Mottram, Donhead St. Mary, 
Dorset, England; he knew Dr. Parfitt well and he expresses 
what so many people felt about that truly great man: 

"What a magnificent person he was and what a privilege 
it was to have known him and to be included in his circle of 
friends. I have often thought over the epithet Vincent 
Massey used of him to me in 1940. It was the word, said in 
rather a lowered voice, 'noble'. And in all the thirty-five 
years I have known him that word fits his every action: 
noble in appearance, stance and gesture; noble in thought; 
noble in his relations to people and to his calling; in fact, 
one of the aristocrats of the race. 

"One feels bereft, as though a bright light had gone 
out, as though a supporting arm were suddenly removed, 
and yet all the same, a feeling of gratitude and praise that 
one has known such a person. That actually sustains one 
in one's feeling of loss. His life, his courage in meeting out- 
rageous fortune, his intense application to his work and 
mental life, his great humanity, his kindness, and his work 
for the physical well being of the world confirms one in be- 
lief in the human race. His life is an inspiring example." 

D. K. RUSSEL ('37-'42) 

David Russel came to the Junior School in September 
1937; in 1939 he entered the Senior School and progressed 
steadily until in 1942 he completed his Junior Matriculation 
with a very good average. 


He entered fully into the life of the School and won, 
in his quiet way, the respect and admiration of masters and 
boys. One could always rely on David to give his best and 
one always knew that he had high principles and ideals. 

David enHsted in the R.C.A.F. in October 1943 and he 
received his commission as a Pilot Officer in March 1945. 
He served in Canada until he was demobilized. 

After graduating from Trinity College he entered 
Osgoode Hall ; he had been practising law for the past year. 

He was an officer with No. 400 City of Toronto Squadron 
and had planned to spend the summer with the Air Force. 
On June 2 he was flying near Cayuga, Ontario, when his 
engine evidently caught on fire and in making an emergency 
landing he was killed. His death shocked all who knew him, 
and left everyone with a deep sense of personal loss. 

The heartfelt sympathy of the School goes out to his 
parents, his sister and brother. "Take this man for your 
example; like him, remember that prosperity can only be 
for the free, that freedom is the sure possession of those 
alone v/ho have the character and courage to defend it."
